Lionel Messi worked out in the gym on Wednesday and did not take part in Barcelona’s group session at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.

Mundo Deportivo and Sport are both reporting that the captain skipped the session but say there’s no suggestion he’s injured and that it’s just part of his training plan.

There’s also no suggestion that it will disrupt his preparations for Barca’s next game against Real Mallorca in La Liga on June 13.

Wednesday was the team’s third session of the week and saw Barca B’s Jorge Cuenca and Kike Saverio join the first team.

Chumi was again with the first team, for the second day running, along with fellow youngsters Inaki Pena, Ronald Araujo, Monchu, Riqui Puig, Alex Collado and Ansu Fati.

Tomorrow is a rest day for Barca but they will be back on Friday for more.
