Lionel Messi leaves PSG training early as explanation emerges after bust-up rumours
Injury is what forced Lionel Messi to leave training early this week - not a bust-up with Paris Saint-Germain boss Christophe Galtier.
Rumours circulated on Friday suggesting that Messi, 35, had been left dissatisfied with Galtiers coaching and walked off before the session at PSGs training ground, the Camp des Loges, was completed.
However, fresh reports sate that the Argentine icon instead withdrew from training after feeling discomfort in his adductor, as uncertainty surrounding his future at the club ramps up.
Sport report that Messi asked to leave early and was granted permission, contrary to claims that hed been involved in argument with boss Galtier - whos escaped the sack after being dumped out of the Champions League.
Its not yet clear whether the recent World Cup winners issue will rule him out of PSGs home game against Stade Rennais on Sunday.
If Messi does play, it could prove to be one of his final matches at the Parc des Princes. The 35-year-old is on course to become a free agent in June when his lucrative contract expires
PSG attempt to tie him down to a new deal with also straddling with UEFA s Financial Fair Play regulations which have already seen the club punished.
