Lionel Messi has made a quick return from the arm injury he suffered against Sevilla a couple weeks back and has now made the squad for the Champions League game against Inter Milan this week.
Messi, with his arm in a sling, watched the home leg against Inter with his son Thiago in the stands at the Nou Camp but could well be back in action for the reverse fixture at the San Siro.
Barcelona initially tweeted the travelling squad without his name on it yet confusingly, they then posted a tweet this morning saying that he was in fact in contention.
And even though it's a bit of risk, it's emerged that Barcelona's all-time top scorer is desperate to play in the fixture because he feels he needs to in order to boost his chances of winning the Ballon d'Or.
The clash against Inter, which could see Barca secure passage into the last 16 with two games to spar, is also the final game before the voting for the Ballon d'Or finishes and AS say Messi "is keen to both fire Barca through to the next round and send out a message as to who the best in the world really is".
He might not start the game but it does seem likely he will play some part in Milan. Barca, however, haven't had much difficulty in his absence.
They beat routinely in his first game injured, smashed Real Madrid 5-1 in El Clasico to end Julen Lopetegui's stint in charge, overcame Cultural Leonesa in the Copa Del Rey and then came from behind to defeat Rayo Vallecano 3-2 in La Liga last night.
Still, there's no denying that they are a completely different animal when he's in the side and we can't wait to see him strutting his stuff again. Two weeks has been too long.
