Barcelona captain Lionel Messi trained with the side on Monday for the first time since requesting to leave the club last month.

Messi had failed to turn up to the club's tests for Covid-19 eight days ago and he has been absent from all subsequent sessions ahead of the new campaign.

He told last week that he is staying put at the club where he has played for almost his entire career.
