Barcelona is set for the Copa del Rey final shown down against Athletic Bilbao this weekend at Seville as manager Ronald Koeman dropped Phillippe Coutinho from the squad.
Barcelona has welcomed back most of the team injured players with Ansu Fati and Neto back in the team but the Dutch tactician has overlooked the former Liverpool star to feature in this encounter.
The club has given the Brazilian star permission to continue his recovery from his injury in his homeland Brazil.
This could be the only trophy Barcelona are totally in control of this season as La Liga is not within their control as they need wait on slip up from Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
Barcelona's Copa del Rey final squad
Goalkeepers: Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Neto (injured), Inaki Pena, Arnau Tenas.
Midfielders: Sergio Busquets, Miralem Pjanic, Riqui Puig, Pedri, Matheus Fernandes, Frenkie de Jong, Ilaix Moriba.
