Lionel Messi made a getaway from Paris to bolster Argentina ahead of their final World Cup qualifiers on Tuesday.
Rumors are circulating about Messi’s future at club level, with Barcelona seemingly opening the door if he wishes to return to Camp Nou, with tears in his eyes last August.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner in Paris Saint-Germain will almost certainly end in the Ligue 1 title but exits the Champions League and the Coupe de France are a blow.
Lionel Messi was scolded by PSG fans in Bordeaux’s recent 3-0 win at home, in that match on March 13 following Real Madrid’s defeat in Europe.
He has one more year left on his PSG contract after this season.
Messi is still recovering from his flu but will be training with the rest of the team. Leandro Paredes has no fitness issues but Di María does have a knock. According to Gaston Edul, Messi is expected to play against Venezuela on Friday but it will be difficult for Di María to play against Venezuela.
Other Argentine national team players trained on Monday with junior Alejandro Garnacho of Manchester United and Matías Soulé of Juventus.
