In any case, this is what Marca has just reported. According to the daily Spanish sports , the Pulga will not be present at the meeting between Morocco and Argentina, March 26 in Tangier.
The newspaper explains that the fivefold gold ball would prefer to play the first friendly match of Argentina, which will oppose Venezuela, March 23 in Madrid, then return directly to Barcelona.
Barça plays against Espanyol on 30 of the same month. The same source adds “that Messi wants to rest and be in his best physical condition to negotiate well the Catalan derby”.
This “information” also circulates in the Argentine press. While many fans of football in Morocco dream of seeing Leo treading the grass at the stadium Ibn Batouta, Albiceleste may be deprived of his star during his trip to the Kingdom.
In recent weeks, speculation on the presence of Lionel Messi against Morocco is well underway. Doubts hung over whether or not he participated in the Atlas Lions. However, with Messi, you’re never sure of anything. Let’s wait until March 26th.
