The Turkish international has continued training this week in  a bid to stay fit during his sides transfer ban.

Barcelona moved into first place in the La Liga table following the victory over Atletico Madrid last week.

Turan was unable to play against his former side due to the FIFA transfer ban imposed on Barcelona which runs until the turn of the year.

The 28-year-old joined the La Liga champions on a five-year deal from Atleti but will have to wait until January before he can make his debut.

Turan is however, able to play international games and starred in the 3-0 victory over the Netherlands in Euro 2016 Group A.

Barcelona start their defence of the Champions League title tonight against Roma in their opening game of the competition.
