El Caliente also has a muscle tear in his left hamstring.

Messi has scored 14 goals in as many games for Barcelona to date this season.

He also injured his thigh against Almeriain September.

"The club's medical services confirmed that Leo Messi has a torn hamstring muscle in his left thigh and is expected to miss the next six to eight weeks," said a Barca press release. "The first phase of Messi's recovery will be covered in Barcelona and he will then travel to Buenos Aires."

The current World Player of the Year will miss Argentina's friendlies against Ecuador and Bosnia-Hercegovina in November as well as a number of domestic La Liga matches.

"He needs to take as much time as he needs, to recover and get back to his level. We need him at his best," Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas told Spanish television.

"I had something similar at Arsenal. You think you're OK, but you're not.

"I had this injury and I wasn't right for up to a year and a half - it's a really frustrating injury.

"You need to take whatever time you need because if you don't it won't heal properly."

Ronaldo reportedly has also struck a deal with Real to increase his share of his image rights increasing them above the current rate of 60 per cent.

'The situation still hasn't been resolved and I don't think now is the right time to talk about it,' said Ronaldo at a press conference in LA. 'Perhaps we'll be able to give more concrete news about this further down the line but now the only thing in my remit is to train and work.'

Former Real boss Mourinho jabbed at Real Madrid ahead of the match.

'Madrid is politics. Madrid is not about football, Madrid is not about sport,' said Mourinho.

Ronaldo responded: 'There are some things in life that don't deserve any mention. This is one of those things and I won't comment on it for obvious reasons. I always respect my coaches and try to learn from them.

'As we say in Portugal, "I don't spit on the plate I eat on." That's how I feel. I prefer to try and remember the positive side.'
