Lionel Messi put the disappointment of not winning the 2017 FIFA Footballer of the year award behind him as he enjoyed dinner with one of his best friends Cesc Fabregas and his partner Daniela Sameen.
The double dinner date comes as it was revealed that Chelsea were willing to sign Messi whose contract expires in the summer of 2018.
The Sun now reports that Cesc might be looking to convince his friend from his teenage years to move to Stamford Bridge.
Messi's wife Antonella Roccuzzo posted a picture of the date on Instagram with the caption: Hermoso almuerzo con ellos! @daniellasemaan @cescf4bregas @leomessi !! Hasta la próxima."
It translates to: "Beautiful lunch with them! @daniellasemaan @ cescf4bregas @leomessi !! Until next time"
Messi lost out in the Best Men's Player category to old rival Cristiano Ronaldo. He was however named in the FIFA FIFPro World XI alongside teammate Andres Iniesta.
