Lionel Messi may feel as though he’s left Barcelona, but he still remains part of the first team’s WhatsApp group chat.
The Argentine is going up against the club as he tries to force a move away from the Camp Nou this summer.
“The group chat we have as a team is relaxed and Messi is still in it,” revealed Frenkie de Jong while speaking to the media in the Netherlands.
“I hope he stays when he returns, but it’s not up to me.
“I’m not someone who has to speak to him to convince him about anything.
“I’m sure lots of people have approached him in recent days.
“It’s chaotic – lots of things are happening.”
