Everybody is back as Barcelona gets ready for the new season.

Monday's training session, the first after the 2-1 loss against Fiorentina, featured the return of Copa América winner and Zamora Trophy holder goalkeeper Claudio Bravo. The Chile captain and one of the stars of the La Liga title campaign by the Blaugrana enjoyed a longer vacation than all of his teammates due to playing in the South American Cup.

Apart from Arda Turan and Douglas Pereira, every player on the squad is fully healthy as of right now, which is great news for the fans and the coaching staff. The Catalan giants are getting ready for the first game at the Camp Nou, in the 50th edition of the traditional Joan Gamper Trophy, on Wednesday against Roma.

Speaking of Bravo, he's the only one not expected to play against the Serie A side, since he'll only have two days to prepare. Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr., Javier Mascherano and Dani Alves are all set to make their debut in the new kits. This will be the final preseason game before the European and Spanish Super Cups, which open the competitive season for the Treble winners.
