Busquets returns to Barca training

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets is on the verge of returning from injury after taking part in training on Monday.

Busquets picked up a thigh problem in his side's thrilling 3-2 win over Valencia on September 1, and withdrew from the Spain squad as a result.

But after sitting out his country's FIFA World Cup qualifier against Finland on Friday, Busquets has now trained with his club. 

Barcelona's official website said the 25-year-old "took part in some of the session" and there were no hiccups for him.

Defender Dani Alves sat through a physio session as club doctors continue to work on his troublesome ankle.

Alves missed Brazil's friendly against Australia due to the issue, which Barcelona staff believe could be tendonitis.
