However, the Argentine did not jump to the training ground providing information that the club is not in charge of clarifying with a medical report. Just like he did last Wednesday, he worked out alone in the gym. Barcelona and the footballer's environment continue to deny any physical problem and insists on the idea that everything is part of a plan studied in advance and carried out to prevent injuries due to the exceptional situation, in which the footballers have been two months confined to their homes. In any case, the time remaining for the match dispute and the absence of a medical report, suggests that Messi will be able to arrive in time to travel to Son Moix and dress in short in this first match after the break due to the coronaviral pandemic. What is clear to Quique Setién and the rest of the coaching staff is that they do not intend to risk with any footballer. Gerard Piqué already told Health Minister Salvador Illa earlier this week that he considered his return to the competition to be hasty due to the risk of injury after being unable to train for so long and without having been able to hold any friendly preparation match. On the other hand, as reported by Cope, Barcelona plans to start contacts with Leo Messi next week to address the renewal of the footballer. Rosario's current contract ends on June 30, 2021, so in the coming weeks it will enter the last 12-month contract and the club does not want to extend negotiations to avoid leaks and comments that alter the tranquility of the team, since the footballer could start to negotiate his future with any club from next January.
