Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to training with the FC Barcelona first-team squad on Friday evening and has been named in the 18-man squad to face Valenica at the weekend.

The Swedish international went through a full work-out wit the rest of the players and will now travel to Mestalla for the game on Saturday. Pep Guardiola has named an 18-man squad for the seventh league encounter of the season. Thierry Henry, Dmytro Chygrynskiy and Gaby Milito are the only three players that are unavailable through injury.
