Mascherano and Bravo are also extending the holidays
A few players of Barça come back to work this week to prepare for the coming season. The Internationals that played the Copa América are expected to come back next Monday (the 25th), but three of them will do it later: Leo Messi, Claudio Bravo and Javier Mascherano.
According to Sport, the staff gave an extra week of holidays to these players, that played the final of the Copa América. This means they will start their season on the 1st of August.
The extra week means that those three players won't travel with the team for the pre-season camp at St. George's Park and won't take part in the first friendly game, due the 30th of July against Celtic. The players that took part in the Euros won't be either, as they started their holidays later.
