Messi Finally Returns To Training After Confirming He'll Stay At Barcelona by ogbiwa: 6:57am On Sep 08
Barcelona's all-time top scorer Lionel Messi has returned to training following his failed attempt to force a move away from the club.

Messi, 33, submitted a transfer request on 25 August but said last Friday he would stay because it is "impossible" for any team to pay his release clause.

It is the first time the Argentine has trained at the club since the arrival of new manager Ronald Koeman.

Barcelona begin their La Liga campaign against Villarreal on 27 September.

Messi trained on his own, as did Philippe Coutinho, while the rest of the squad trained together.

Messi failed to attend the club's testing for Covid-19 on 30 August and has been absent from training since sending a fax informing the club of his wish to exercise a clause in his contract which he believed would allow him to leave for free with immediate effect.

Both Barcelona and La Liga insisted that clause was no longer valid - with any club wishing to buy him required to pay a release clause of 700m euros (£624m).

La Liga president Javier Tebas said at the launch of the 2020-21 La Liga season on Monday he was "never seriously worried" Messi would leave Barcelona this summer.

"We want Messi to be with us. He is the best player in the history of football and we want him to end his career in La Liga," said Tebas.

"He has been with us for 20 years and we are so pleased he is staying with us and not going to another league."

I have been watching this guy closely and I discovered he is a perfect gentleman. He has some good attitude and he surely know how to react without cheap publicity, Infact, he hates publicity.
I just like his personality and this is why he has achieved this much.

Eibar man is going no where.
We all know he would go nowhere.
That was another dirty trick to sign an improved contract.
Joke's on whoever thinks that he would leave Barca anytime soon.
I appreciate the 2nd best player in the world sha.
At least La Liga no go lose money via Image rights

Don't be stupid..
A smart person will know he did want to leave but the club just couldn't let go and if he'd pushed on it would've resulted in bad blood between him and the club.
Don't be childish and don't allow fanatism turn you into a slowpoke.
Btw,who are you that you think you're so important that they'll wanna use you to catch cruise or distract you from that demolition?
You're as irrelevant to the club and Messi as a condom is in a convent..

Messi has always held Barcelona to their balls for more money on different occasions! Yet Messi’s fans would argue that he is committed to the club.

The truth of the matter is that Messi never wanted to leave. All those Jijiji were just dramas to halt the mouths of those who claim he cannot leave that club he's married to. Lolz

When Ronaldo wanted to go, nobody send am or even beg am not to. But Messi wanted to go, the whole Spain is begging him.


Plz, someone should remind me who is the GOAT again... grin grin

GOAT has my support any day, anytime. When I heard you are going to Manchester City, I automatically had two premiership clubs to support, but since you ain't going no more, ManCity in premiership is a no no. Although you are small in stature, yet you are the Giant Of All Time for me.
