Luis Suarez and his wife join Lionel Messi at his sprawling villa for talks over their Barcelona futures

LIONEL MESSI and Luis Suarez held talks over their Barcelona futures at the Argentine’s house on Thursday night.

TV cameras picked up the former Liverpool star driving into Messi’s Castelldefels pad with his wife.

It is thought to have been the first time the strike duo, and good pals, have met since their time at the Camp Nou was thrown into huge doubt.

According to TV3 via Sport, Suarez drove up to his friend’s house on Thursday evening.

The presence of Suarez’s wife Sofia Balbi is little surprise given the families’ close relationship, with Messi and his partner Antonella Roccuzzo often joining them on holiday.

Messi’s situation appears to be far more complicated with the 33-year-old potentially set for a legal battle with his club.

Having enacted a clause in his contract that allows him to leave for free, he has been told the option expired in June.

That has compelled Barcelona to demand a fee as high as £630million should he leave, with Manchester City thought to be best placed to swoop.

Club president Josep Maria Bartomeu has said he will offer his resignation if Messi publically commits to the Blaugrana.

Fans have made their anger known amid continuing protests outside the Camp Nou.

Reports in Spain suggest the star is preparing to make a public statement in the coming days.

Meanwhile, Suarez broke his silence on Thursday afternoon, condemning the situation he has found himself in.

He wrote: “There are people talking about me or in my name when for years I’ve had no relationship with them, when I have to talk I talk for myself.”

Ajax, Juventus and Inter Miami have been linked with moves for the 33-year-old after he was told by Ronald Koeman that he was surplus to requirements.
