    After nearly two months on the sidelines, Lionel Messi has been officially cleared to play for Barcelona against Getafe in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, per the club's official Twitter.

    Leo has been recovering from his thigh-muscle injury in his native Argentina.

    If Woody Allen were to dramatise the situation, it would seem reasonable to believe Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson would play his doctors.

    This Egyptian-themed tale of a Barcelona dynasty is ripe for Universal Studios to make a ride out of it.

    Would you want to fly past Alexis Sanchez on a roller coaster?
