Lionel Messi Back at Training with PSG After Suspension

Lionel Messi has returned to training at Paris St Germain, the Ligue 1 club announced on Monday. The forward had been suspended after he missed a session of training due to a trip he took to Saudi Arabia.

French media reported Messi’s suspension for two weeks following an unauthorised trip he took to Saudi Arabia. He was due to train with his squad the next day, the day after Ligue 1’s 3-1 loss to Lorient.

Messi was not included in the PSG squad that won 3-1 at Troyes, the second-bottom team, on Sunday, despite his apology to PSG, his teammates and himself on Friday.
PSG shared a photo of Messi in training with the caption “The Argentinian forward from Paris Saint-Germain returned to training on Monday, 8 May.”

PSG is six points ahead of Lens, and eight points ahead of Olympique de Marseille after four rounds of matches.

In recent days, there has been much speculation about Messi’s PSG future.

A source close the Argentina captain has told Reuters he was offered a contract extension at PSG, but a move to Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia is not an option for the World Cup champion who turns 36 next week.

PSG suspended him for two weeks and he was not included in the 3-1 victory over Troyes, who are ranked second to last. He has now returned to training and apologized to PSG as well as his teammates via video on Friday. PSG will play Ajaccio at home on Saturday.

Seven-time Ballon d’Or Winner joined PSG in August 2021 from Barcelona after the Catalan Club ran into severe financial problems. Barcelona wants to resign Messi this summer, but it’s unclear if they can reach an agreement within the financial fair play rules of La Liga. Inter Miami, a Major League Soccer team, is also interested in Messi. The Saudi Arabian club Al Hilal has made a massive offer to Messi of over PS350m per year.
