Directly, Messi entered the medical bubble next to his fellow national team players.

With Barcelona this season, Messi had only won the Copa del Rey. But he had bid farewell to the Champions League from the Round of 16.

Messi Arrives in Argentina

To join the camp in Ezeiza, Messi arrives in Argentina alongside a number of players.

The arrival of the professional players began last Sunday, starting with Lautaro Martinez and Nicolas Dominguez.

The Paris Saint-Germain duo, Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes, also arrived from the French capital.

Likewise, young right-back Juan Foyth will join after winning with his Spanish team Villarreal in the European League final against Manchester United.

However, Sergio Aguero will be the last to join after playing the Champions League final next Saturday with Manchester City against Chelsea.

The Tango team will play two heavy qualifying matches on June 3 against Chile in Santiago del Estero, Argentina.

Then, after 5 days, against Colombia in the Colombian city of Barranquilla.

In fact, Argentina’s team is in second place with 10 points after 3 wins and a draw.

They are just two points behind Brazil, which has the full score.

 

On the other hand, Barcelona did not appear with Messi at the level expected this season. Therefore, the club’s president seeks to sign new players to inspire the soul.
