Barcelona players reported back to the club for pre-season training on Wednesday as they begin their preparations for the new campaign.

Sergi Roberto, Denis Suarez and Lucas Digne were among the players present, although the majority of the squad will be given more time off after their World Cup exploits.

In total there were 15 players involved on Wednesday as they underwent medical tests and physical checks after their summer break.

Rafinha, Jasper Cillessen, Paco Alcacer, Nelson Semedo, Andres Gomes and Aleix Vidal were all present. Munir and Douglas were also around as were Sergi Samper and Carles Alena who are both on the comeback trail from injury,

The players are due to have a double training session on Thursday and have a number of friendlies scheduled before the start of the season.

They head to the US once again for their pre-season tour where they will play Tottenham, Roma and AC Milan in the International Champions Cup.
