Alexis Sanchez, Leo Messi and Mascherano, back to Barça on Monday, gone by Tuesday!!

Alexis Sanchez, Leo Messi and Mascherano will train with the rest of the Barça squad on Monday. WELCOME TO FC BARCELONA ALEXIS, WE MISSED YOU MESSI AND MASCHERANO!!! But AS9 then leaves on Tuesday...

It seems like a bad joke, but it's far from it: Alexis will join FC Barcelona on Monday 8th August but has been called up by the Chilean national team for a friendly against France on the 10th. That gives him a total of TWO training sessions under Pep Guardiola before the Spanish Supercopa against Real Madrid on the 14th.

- How can FIFA be so greedy? I mean, they just took a massive chunk of our FC Barcelona players' holiday and want them back for a pointless friendly 2 weeks after the Copa America final?
