Six time Ballon winner, Lionel Messi has returned to training with Barcelona after he earlier threatened to leave.

 The 33-year-old Argentine superstar was pictured on Monday afternoon, September 7, arriving at the Joan Gamper Ciutat Esportiva after agreeing to still pitch his tent with the club.

Messi had wanted to activate a clause in his contract to make the Spanish side release him but the club insisted that the time had lapsed and that he would have to pay 700 million Euros if he wanted to leave.

His dad who doubles as his agent and himself met with the club officials and he decided to stay committed to his boyhood club especially after his children weren’t favourably disposed to his leaving.
