Arda Turan may not be playing in the FIFA World Club Cup but that did not stop head coach Luis Enrique bringing him along to Japan to train with the team.

The bearded winger travelled on the back seat of the coach along with his new best friend for life Neymar and fellow buddy Dany Alves.

Javier Mascherano shared the picture of the team bus photo on his Instagram account with himself sat right in the middle of the group picture.

Turan joined Barcelona on a five-year deal from Atletico Madrid over the summer but is currently unable to play as a result of the FIFA transfer ban imposed on the club banning the La Liga champions from being able to register new players until January.

The World Club Cup is a tournament held between the champion clubs from each of the six continental confederations, as well as the national league champion from the host country – Japan.

Barcelona will kick off their campaign against Chinese giants Guangzhou Evergrande on Thursday.
