Barcelona may fine Lionel Messi for missing out on club’s COVID-19 testing and training session on Monday.
Messi informed Barcelona last week that he wanted to leave the club and things seem to have gone sour.
The relationship between the Argentine and Barcelona have gone messier since he wanted to invoke a clause that will allow him leave on free transfer.
Diaro Sport reports that Messi could pay fine up to the tune of €595,000. More so, Barcelona also have the right to suspend Messi’s salary if he keeps missing the training session without a good cause.
The source further disclosed that a fine up to €595,000 is possible which is seven percent of his monthly salary of €8.5 million per month.
Messi did not show up for the coronavirus test on Sunday, and did not attend training on Monday. He has since told management he wants to go and does not have an intention to continue for now.
