The club confirmed on Sunday he was one of four players who had tested positive for coronavirus after he missed travelling with fellow  stars Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes back to the French capital.


The seven-times Ballon d’Or winner headed to Argentina with them on December 23 to spend Christmas and New Year’s Eve with his family in his hometown of Rosario.


Before testing positive,  Messi and his wife were filmed singing and dancing at a private party after returning to Argentina for the festive season. 

Reports on Tuesday said Messi was asymptomatic and ‘felt good’. 

The same night the superstar met famous Argentinian DJ Fer Palacio. He later posted his negative Covid result online after being blamed for Messi’s positive test.


Palacio said he took the decision after being called an ‘assassin’ by social media haters.
