The summer holidays are over for Juventus’ international players after they returned to training with the Old Lady.
The Italian champions had started preparations for the 2013-14 campaign without those who were involved in the Confederations Cup in Brazil.
Gianluigi Buffon, Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Martin Caceres, Claudio Marchisio, Andrea Pirlo and Sebastian Giovinco all reported to Vinovo this morning.
The eight players underwent a number of medical tests which will continue on Thursday. They will then join up with the rest of the squad, currently given two days off, on Friday for their tour of the USA.
Boss Antonio Conte is now only missing Paul Pogba, who will meet up with the squad in America after he helped the France Under-20 side win the World Cup earlier this month.
