  • Messi skips PSG awards for Coldplay gig
  • His wife posts about 'magical night'
  • Argentina star set to leave French champions

WHAT HAPPENED? Messi was spotted attending the gig in Barcelona the day after clinching his second Ligue 1 winner's medal with Paris Saint-Germain, missing the UNFP ceremony in the process. The Argentina legend and his wife then posed for a picture with lead singer Chris Martin and the rest of the band.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Messi has been widely tipped to rejoin Barcelona this summer, with the 35-year-old certain to bid farewell to PSG as his contract is up in June. It therefore seems significant that he attended the concert in the Catalan city, although the Blaugrana's financial situation could make a transfer difficult this summer.
