The 33-year-old superstar previously told club bosses he wanted to leave sparking mass hysteria in the football world.

But the club captain had a change of heart after his kids burst into tears and a costly legal battle over the release clause in his contract looked to be the only way out.

And Barca team-mate Griezmann has joined the voices backing Messi to continue in Catalonia.

Griezmann told M6: “We are trying to stay updated with the issue, but it is between him and the club.

“We only hope that he stays.

“I am trying to stay focused on the national team and prepare well for the next two games.

“We have heard a little of everything but we don’t know anything else about all this affair.”

The Barca pair were previously hit with reports of a training ground bust-up and Griezmann put their relationship under the microscope last year after admitting Messi barely speaks to him.

Although it now appears Messi will NOT be moving to Manchester City or any other club this summer, things are far from rosy.

The six-time Ballon d’Or winner took aim at Barca president Josep Bartomeu for not allowing him to leave for free.

Messi told Goal: “I told the club, including the president that I wanted to go. I’ve been telling him that all year. I believed it was time to step aside.”
