The summer holidays are now over for Barcelona stars Lionel Messi, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets and Gerard Pique.
On Tuesday, the quartet will dust off the cobwebs and get in their first piece of pre-season work.
That will take place at Sant Joan Despi, while their teammates continue on their tour of the United States.
As confirmed by the club, the four players will clock in at 09:00 CET at the club’s training facilities, where they will undergo rigorous medical tests.
In the evening, at 18:30 CET, they will start physical work in a closed-door training session.
Taking into account that the Supercopa de Espana is to be played on August 12, it isn’t being ruled out that the players arrive in time for the game in Tangier.
Of the rest of the internationals who are still on holiday having gone further in the World Cup, Barcelona have yet to provide a date for when they are expected to return.
