After being chosen as president in the elections on 18 July, Bartomeu headed to the United States to accompany the squad on their pre-season tour. There, he coincided with the majority of the squad who last season claimed the treble and on Monday he was able to welcome back international players Messi, Mascherano, Neymar, Alves and Bravo.
