WATCH: Barcelona star Messi ATTACKED in Ibiza

Barcelona star Lionel Messi has been ATTACKED in Ibiza.

Messi was led to safety in an Ibiza nightclub after a man appeared to try to attack the Barcelona forward.

The shocking moment was captured on camera, with security guards seen surrounding the Argentina international as he left the venue.

Messi was partying with wife Antonela, along with Barca stars Luis Suarez and Jordi Alba. Monaco midfielder and former Barca teammate Cesc Fabregas was also with the group.

Messi had been granted an extended break by Barca after his Copa America commitments with Argentina earlier this summer.
