Barcelona had its first two Spanish league games postponed because it played later into the season in the Champions League.

Club president Josep Bartomeu later said that keeping Messi was a priority, as Koeman’s project revolved on the player.

Messi was one of the first to arrive at the team’s training center in Barcelona on Monday.

Messi said last week he wasn’t happy with Barcelona but would rather stay than get into a legal battle with the “club of his life.”

MADRID (AP) - Lionel Messi returned to training with Barcelona on Monday, almost two weeks after he told the club he wanted to leave.
