La Liga will start in less than three weeks and FC Barcelona still has a lot of work to do regarding the rebuilding of the squad. There has been a lot of noise regarding Messi’s situation at the club after the Argentine announced his desire to leave the club through a Burofax.

Koeman has already communicated to players like Luis Suárez, Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal, and Samuel Umtiti that he does not count on them for next season.

Tomorrow, that is Sunday, all players will go through a PCR test and then start training for pre-season from Monday. According to the latest reports, Messi has told Barcelona that he will not show up for the PCR test.
