Messi Trains With Barcelona as Transfer Rumors Fade

Lionel Messi trains with his Barcelona teammates for the second day in a row ahead of the start of the 2020/2021 Liga season.

Barcelona’s all-time top scorer was seen smiling as he and his fellow teammates worked through persistent rain at the club’s Joan Gamper training complex under the orders of new coach Ronald Koeman.

Messi, who remains captain despite publicly declaring he wished to leave the club and lashing out at president Josep Maria Bartomeu, resumed training with the team on Monday after refusing to report back eight days previously while he continued to seek a departure.

But the Argentine announced he would stay at Barca for this year because he did not want to challenge the club in court over a disputed clause in his contract which he argued allowed him to leave without a transfer fee.
