Barcelona have confirmed they will move to group training on Monday as they step up their preparations ahead of a possible return to La Liga action next month.
The players have been training individually for a week but will now be allowed to train in groups of up to 10 at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.
Here’s the club’s official statement:
“Another step forward in training for Barça. From Monday 18 May the clubs in La Liga will enter into phase 3 of training. In this phase training sessions of up to 10 players is allowed as the Club have been informed by La Liga.

It’s another positive step for Barcelona and La Liga, the next phase would see the club being given permission to return to full training before a possible restart in June.
There is still no confirmation when La Liga will return but there’s a definite desire to try to complete the 2019-20 campaign with games set to be played behind closed doors.
