Arda Turan included in Barcelona Super Cup squad, Neymar out with mumps

Arda Turan

Arda Turan has been included in the 24-man Barcelona squad that has travelled to Georgia ahead of the European Super Cup final against Sevilla.

The European Super Cup will be an all Spanish affair as Champions League winners Barcelona take on Europa League champions Sevilla.

Turan has been included in the trip alongside summer signing Aleix Vidal but both are ineligible as the FIFA transfer ban imposed on the club means that the La Liga title holders cannot register any new players until January.

Neymar has been left out of the squad after being diagnosed with parotitis (mumps) according to the official Barcelona website.

Adriano, Douglas and Jordi Alba have also been included in the squad but will not play due to injury.

The full squad is as follows:

Ter Stegen, Bravo, Masip, Douglas, Piqué, Rakitic, Sergio, Alves, Pedro, Iniesta, Suárez, Messi, Rafinha, Mascherano, Bartra, Sandro, Munir, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto, Adriano, Vermaelen, Mathieu, Halilovic, Aleix Vidal, Arda Turan.
