Barcelona The young boy is from Argentina

Emanuel Arias is an Argentine boy who is currently in Barcelona to undergo a modern treatment for congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia (CPT) and he has had the chance to meet Lionel Messi.

The issue used to require amputation, but since 2014 Doctor Xesco Soldado has been working with a new treatment in the city of Barcelona that is having good result and the youngster has been in the Catalan capital for around a month for this treatment thanks to the Fundacion Alex charity.

When Messi learned of this, he met young Emanuel at the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper, Barcelona‘s training centre.
