Barcelona youngsters Riqui Puig, Carles Alena, Pedri, Inaki Pena and Juan Miranda were all back in training on Saturday at the Ciutat Esportiva.

The players had been on international duty with the Spain Under 21 side who beat North Macedonia 1-0 on Thursday.

Puig and Miranda both played all 90 minutes, while Alena started the game but was replaced 10 minutes after the break. Pedri was a substitute but did come on with 20 minutes in Skopje.

Meanwhile, Luis Suarez and Arturo Vidal were reportedly invited to train away from their team-mates as they close in on exits, although the striker’s latest Instagram post seems at odds with that report.

The players now have the day off on Sunday but will be back next week and should be joined by captain Lionel Messi.
