Messi and Abidal were involved in a public spat earlier in the month, after the sporting director seemingly suggested that the club's players were responsible for the sacking of former manager Ernesto Valverde. 

The ongoing feud at Barca has seen Messi being linked with a move away from the club where he has spent his whole senior career, with the likes of Juventus, Liverpool and Manchester City tenuously linked with his name.

The 32-year-old's former agent Horacio Gaggioli has now shared his thoughts on the matter, and admitted it would be hard to see Messi at any club other than Barcelona.

"In football, everything is possible," Gaggioli told Italian website Inter News.

"... but I have many doubts that Messi wants to leave Barcelona. Leo knows that in this club, with this system and the players who have accompanied him to this day, he has grown up.

"If he were to leave, he would not be the same player."
