He may not have trained with his new teammates at all yet, but Barcelona could technically throw Luis Suarez in the deep end as early as Monday.
Although his appeal to CAS failed and his four month ban remains, Suarez was granted permission to train with his team as well as play in friendlies.
Barcelona face Mexican side Leon in a tie for the Joan Gamper Trophy at the Camp Nou on Monday giving the club an opportunity to test out their star signing.
But have been ostracized and isolated the way he was, Suarez is more than likely lacking fitness so probably won’t be rushed onto the pitch by the club.
Having said that, we still wouldn’t be surprised to see the Uruguayan make a cameo from the bench!
