Following his incredibly candid interview on Friday, during which he revealed why he was staying at Barcelona, Messi returned to training for the first time under Ronald Koeman.
Two weeks ago, the Argentine shocked the world when he requested to leave the Catalan club after becoming increasingly frustrated with Bartomeu and his board, who have been accused of getting the Blaugrana into their current situation.
The 33-year-old had reportedly chosen Manchester City as his next destination, but due to contractual technicalities, the forward was not granted his wish.
Messi's contract in Spain is set to expire in June 2021, meaning that this could very well be the Argentine's final season in a Barcelona shirt.
