Barcelona to start pre-season in London

Catalan sports paper Sport claims that Barcelona will start the 2009-2010 pre-season with a training camp in the surroundings of London, after the players had three days of physical tests in Barcelona from 20 June on.

As for the rest of the pre-season, Barcelona would have serious doubts on a new tour in the United States (read more here). Although nothing has yet been decided, it looks like the team could this year go on tour in Japan since the club has received some interesting offers to play friendly games in the Asian country.

Barcelona has also cancelled the post-season plan to play games in Uzbekistan, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, mainly because there are too little players available because of World Cup qualifying games, the Confederations cup and the European championship under-21. There's a chance that some of these games could be included in the pre-season schedule.

Well, we make money with those tours to the USA or Asia, but I doubt that this will be good for the players.
