It is unconfirmed when Messi will return to Catalonia to begin next season’s preparations but Barcelona have confirmed that the Argentine will be back to captain the side against Arsenal on August 4.

Following his Copa America heartbreak, Messi is expected to return by the end of July after being given extra time off to recover which means he will miss the club’s tour of Japan.

The 32-year-old was handed a one-match ban and a £1,200 fine on Tuesday evening after he was sent off in Argentina’s Copa America third-place playoff with Chile earlier this month.

Messi will miss Argentina’s first 2022 World Cup qualifying match as a result of the ban.

He also hit out at CONMEBOL by accusing them of being ‘corrupt’ but the South American football governing body backed down from imposing a tougher sanction on the forward.

Messi’s comments came after he refused to collect his bronze medal following the contentious red card at the Copa America.
