Sergio Aguero, who was due to start preseason with Barcelona on Monday, has decided to end his holidays early and was at the training ground on Friday.
After working alone, with the rest of the squad in Germany on a mini-tour, Aguero sent a short message on the Catalan club's social media channels,
"Really happy to get started training and really looking forward to seeing my teammates," the former Manchester City striker said.
Aguero's had just 19 days off since Argentina won the Copa America but after a stop-start season with City he wants to hit the ground running at Barça.
He signed for the Catalan club earlier this summer on a free transfer after his contract in England expired.
