Ansu Fati is back in the Barcelona squad for the Joan Gamper Trophy match against Elche on Saturday but there is no place once more for Luis Suarez.

Fati sustained a hip injury during training and sat out the 3-1 friendly win over Girona in midweek but returns to bolster Ronald Koeman’s attacking options.

Suarez is not among those, even as speculation over his future continues to shift.

Juventus are reported to have withdrawn their interest in the 33-year-old Uruguay international, with Atletico Madrid emerging as contenders for his signature.

Inter Milan target Arturo Vidal is also not involved and there is no place in the 23-man squad for Riqui Puig.

The 21-year-old made his first-team breakthrough last season but he is another player rumoured not to be part of Koeman’s plans at Camp Nou.

Lionel Messi returned and scored against Girona following his attempts to leave Barca earlier in the transfer window.
