The 30-year-old missed Barcelona’s 6-1 victory over Sporting Gijon on Wednesday 1 March due to injury. Turan has returned to training but has yet to regain full match fitness.

Turan has now missed Barca’s last five games in all competitions with injury. The explosive midfielder is however, expected to feature against Celta Vigo on the weekend.

Enrique could do with having Turan back considering Barcelona are in the middle of a congested fixture period. Barca play Celta Vigo on Saturday and then take on PSG in the Champions League mid-week.

Barcelona are currently first in the La Liga table following Real Madrid being held to a 3-3 draw against Las Palmas. Barca lead on goal difference but the Madrid based outfit do have a game in hand.
