FC Barcelona open their La Liga campaign in a tough tie away against Atheltic Bilbao. While he will not be able to play in the game, the club have been boosted with the news that Neymar has returned to training.

.

Neymar had missed FC Barcelona’s UEFA Super Cup win and Spanish Super Cup loss due to mumps. But, has now finally begun training with the squad.

The Bilbao game tomorrow, however, might be too soon for the Brazil star as he has also missed a part of pre-season due to participation in the Copa America.

With Pedro’s move to Chelsea FC, and Arda Turan ineligible to play till January, Barcelona will be relieved that Neymar is not far off from returning to the starting XI.
