Lionel Messi will not travel back to Barcelona with the rest of his companion following last night’s match at Real Valladolid.The game  scheduled at Barcelona is last before Christmas, with R.Koeman’s team not back in action further till December 29 at home to Eibar.

As the game at the Estadio J.Zorrilla is finished, Messi will be enrouted to his holidays almost straight away from Barcelona. As We understand, a private jet will be waiting for the captain to take him to another place of the world, probably Argentina.

The jet, already in Valladolid on Tuesday morning, went to pick up Messi’s wife and children from Barcelona and is all set to fly back to Valladolid early night.It remains unsure whether Messi will leave the J.Zorrilla with the rest of the Barcelona squad or whether he’ll go straight to his private Jet.

Koeman is giving his teammates and staffs a few days rest during the Christmas festival, with the entire squad including Messi and expected back in training on Sun, December 27.
