Lionel Messi faces a race to be fit for Barcelona's first match since the coronavirus lockdown after it was confirmed he has a thigh muscle injury.

It was suggested at the time that Messi was merely working away from the cameras in individual gym sessions.

Another one includes the six-time Ballon d'Or winner's 2010 demolition against Arsenal in the Champions League as he scored four times and received a ideal 10/10 rating from L'Equipe.

The Argentinian talisman, who is Barcelona's captain and LaLiga's all-time record goalscorer, trained away from the rest of the squad on Friday. "In the next days he is expected to work with the group again".

Barca said in a statement released on the club's official website: "Quique Setien and his team were back out on the training ground this Friday after taking the previous day off".

Barcelona say their captain has a minor right quadriceps injury and trained in isolation, doing specific exercises to avoid unnecessary risks.

Details of the forward's contract situation were revealed past year by El Pais and team-mate Gerard Pique appeared to confirmed that Messi could go when he said: 'He has earned the right to be able to choose what he does with his future after everything he's given the club'. The latter, like Messi, worked out individually this morning.
