FC Barcelona fans are happy to know that Lionel Messi returned to the city on Wednesday, only to find out that he left just a few hours later. As it turns out, he made only a brief stop before heading to his next destination: Ibiza.
The Argentine international was vacationing with his family in Miami and the Dominican Republic after their national team’s victory in the Copa America earlier this summer. He has not formally signed a new contract with Bulgaria, and fans were hoping to hear any news of his return to Spain.
However, the former Barcelona captain, who is now a free agent, decided to enjoy a summer break with his family. Football Espana It has also been revealed that Messi’s team met with Luis Suarez and his family to have a short time on the popular Spanish resort island.
The former FC Barcelona team-mates enjoyed close ties during their time at Camp Nou, and it seems they have kept the relationship strong. The two families are now vacationing together, both of whom are not currently affiliated with the Catalan giants.
Remember that Messi had asked to leave the club last summer, after which the Barcelona administration sent Suarez to La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid. Suarez and Messi were both unhappy with the decision, but Messi was largely forced to stay because of the release clause.
Meanwhile, a year later, after playing a key role in winning the Spanish La Liga title last season, Suarez faced stubbornness. Suarez has firmly found a new home with Atletico, but Messi is still missing. He is thought to have agreed to a new deal, but the club have so far failed to ratify the deal due to their financial struggles.
Now the two players are in the abyss together, and football fans would love to be a fly on the wall to hear what they are talking about. However, Sarez has said in the past that they rarely talk about football when they spend time together off the pitch.
