STORY: Lionel Messi was huddled in his home along with his friend and current team mate Luis Suarez on Thursday (August 27) evening, local media reported, as the future of both players at Barcelona continues to look uncertain.
Local media reported Suarez arrived to Messi's home on Thursday afternoon, while Reuters witnesses spotted the Uruguayan's wife, Sofia Balbi, on the property.
The 33-year-old Messi has declared his wish to leave the club whose academy he joined at the age of 13, beginning a glittering career which has soured over the past 12 months under the management of president Josep Maria Bartomeu.
There is also speculation surrounding Suarez's future at the Camp Nou after he was absent from a list of players Bartomeu declared were not for sale as he promised big changes after the side's seismic 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
