Barcelona have been given a boost ahead of the new La Liga season as midfielder Carles Alena has returned to first-team training after a lengthy injury lay-off.

The 20-year-old underwent surgery in June which was expected to rule him out of action for over three months.

However, the club confirmed on Tuesday that he’s back in training. So too is Denis Suarez who picked up a problem during the club’s US tour.

Barcelona kick off their La Liga campaign on Saturday when Alaves are the first visitors to the Camp Nou.
