Lionel Messi finally returns to training after transfer saga. Barça released images of Messi’s first session back on Monday afternoon.
Leo Messi is back in Barcelona colours. Some form of normality has returned after weeks of uncertainty.
A standoff between the club and the player and an unhappy ending for one party: Messi stays against his will. At least for now.
But on Monday he was back at the club’s Ciutat Esportiva at 16.00h CET and trained alone later in the afternoon, following La Liga’s strict protocol.
Messi took a PCR test at home and tested negative for coronavirus which allowed him to return to Barça’s training base.
He will be tested again later in the week before he’s allowed to train with his teammates.
