Lionel Messi has decided to stay at Barcelona following lengthy talks with his father and legal advisors, according to Marca.

The Argentinian's future at the club was in doubt when he expressed a desire to leave, failing to report for the start of pre-season training.

But Barcelona refused to grant his wish and informed the player's father, Jorge Messi, that they are still planning for Messi to play under Ronald Koeman in the new season.

And Marca are now reporting that the 33-year-old has undergone a U-turn and decided to stay at the Camp Nou for 2020/21.
