Messi, 35, became a tourist ambassador for the Gulf State last year after agreeing a £25million deal to promote the country.

The forward reportedly missed PSG training on Monday, with the club’s Qatari bosses coming down hard on Messi as a consequence of his trip.

But PSG fans arrived in their droves outside of the club’s head office following the ban and after the club suffered a 3-1 loss to Lorient at the weekend.

The protest saw fans ignite flares while holding up banners calling on the club’s management to resign.

In a video taken at the scene, they could be heard chanting: “Neymar casse-toi” which translates to go away but in slang and general use means “f*** off.”

The club released a statement slamming the actions of the supporters.

It said: “Paris Saint-Germain strongly condemns the intolerable and insulting actions of a small group of people, which took place this Wednesday.

“Whatever the differences, nothing can justify such acts. The Club gives its full support to its players, its management and all those affected by these shameful behaviours.”

Messi is now set to leave the club after two underwhelming years in Paris, following the move from the French league leaders.

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague told the BBC that “neither club nor player” want to renew Messi’s expiring deal at the end of the season.

And reports suggest his trip to Saudi could be indicative of his future, with the Argentine heavily linked with a transfer to a club in the nation.

This could likely see him reignite his feud with Cristiano Ronaldo, who currently stars for title-chasing Al-Nassr.

However, many teams remain keen on the World Cup winner, including a host of Premier League and European sides.

Pep Guardiola could be in line for a reunion at Manchester City, while cross-town rivals Manchester United would also be keen to get their hands on Messi, though this may depend on the club’s new ownership.

Money spinners Chelsea and Newcastle have been linked too, while the door is open for Barcelona to bring their best-ever player home with Inter Miami also linked in the past.
