Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi shared a photo of himself drinking cocktails with his former teammate, Luis Suárez, after it was reported that he is ‘banned’ from club training.
Messi has been a free agent after his contract with Barcelona expired on July 1, but he is expected to sign a new contract before the start of the La Liga season.
There are reports that the Argentine international was prepared to accept a 50 percent pay cut and sign a new five-year deal with the Spanish giants.
However, less than two weeks into the new season, the future of the six-time Ballon d’Or winner remains in doubt, but Messi seems particularly unfazed by the whole affair.
Fresh from winning the Copa América with Argentina, his first major international trophy, the 34-year-old uploaded a photo to Instagram of him and Suárez enjoying a couple of cocktails by a pool in Ibiza.
Messi, wearing an orange shorts with starfish, looked happy with the Uruguayan, himself wearing a Mickey Mouse shorts.
According to AS, Messi cannot train with Barcelona until his contract is signed.
