The Barcelona captain returned to training on Wednesday just 11 days after fracturing his arm against Sevilla following a nasty fall in a 4-2 La Liga win at the Camp Nou.

"He could be available, but we have to wait, let's see how he feels about his safety". The 31-year-old was named among the 22 men who travelled to Milan on Monday morning, but whether he will get some minutes is still unclear considering that there's still some time to go until his prescribed date of recovery.

Messi has missed the 5-1 win over Real Madrid and a 2-0 victory over Inter. "What we will not do is take any risks". Of course it's necessary to get Messi back as soon as possible.

"With Messi, Barca's degree of unpredictability increases but their attitude is the same without him", he said.

Xhaka confident Arsenal will finish in top four
Having arrived from Sampdoria this season, the Uruguayan midfielder has adjusted quickly and is a partner to the 26-year-old. We know that to get to that chance, you have to get the three points in games like we had against Crystal Palace.

Barca lead Group B with nine points from three games heading into Tuesday's fixture in Milan, ahead of Inter (six points), Tottenham (one) and PSV Eindhoven (one).

"But I do not want to take too many risks. We have won without him but we're happy to have him with the group". We have to prepare for the game well. "My own contribution? My job is to score goals and help the team, thankfully I did that".

Coach Ernesto Valverde said on Friday he did not rule Messi out of playing against Inter, but said he was concerned about rushing the player back, especially as his side are on a winning run without their usual talisman. We know we have to improve, but the important thing is the goal difference.
