Barcelona won't embark on another global tour next summer.

Marca says with the World Cup being staged, Barca are reluctant to commit their players to a busy preseason.

They are considering the possibility of travelling to the USA or an Asian country to promote the Barça brand, but keeping to the framework of an old-fashioned pre-season tour: setting up a permanent camp in a US or Asian city and playing several games, but without travelling great distances.
