Lionel Messi’s father is being investigated for laundering drug money for Colombian cartels, according to a leading Spanish newspaper.

El Mundo claims the Spanish authorities believe a charity called Friends of Messi – which has held fundraising matches and concerts – has been been used to launder cash.

Jorge Messi is already under investigation by Spanish tax authorities.

El Mundo claims the investigation by the Civil Guard has already seen Lionel Messi and his team-mates Dani Alves, Pinto and Javier Mascherano interviewed.

Barca continued their impressive start to the La Liga season with a 2-1 win over Villarreal on Saturday, with Messi junior again absent through injury.
