After a difficult first year in psgLionel Messi finds the right rhythm and lets his talent explode again. Add to that a FC Barcelona that has recovered economic capacity in a very short time, and Joan Laporta does not hesitate to send a few well-directed short sentences to explain that Lionel Messi was going to finish his career in Catalonia. At the moment, the Argentine is focused on his season with Paris SG and the upcoming World Cup with his national team. But even recently, Fabrizio Romano assured that Messi would never talk about his future when the season has just started, and that he will end his contract in June.
Laporta called Messi
However, a very different version came out from Sergio González, an Argentine journalist who closely follows Messi news. The journalist assures that Joan Laporta and Lionel Messi spoke on the phone this week. The president of FC Barcelona wanted to restore contact and apologize for how things turned out when he left. Indeed, the Argentine had heard that a technical player like Gérard Piqué had encouraged Barça not to keep him, assuring that the dressing room would live better without him. Stabs in the back that the number 30 of PSG did not digest.
However, more than a year later, Lionel Messi has made it clear that he would not be against a return to FC Barcelona, the club that placed him at the top of world football. While explaining to Joan Laporta that he was focused on the World Cup, he said that he would study his future at the end of the season, and that if Barça were serious, the door was open to a new destination that could be a return to the blaugranas
Reluctantly, therefore, Lionel Messi causes quite a stir, as PSG have also decided to take a step forward by approaching the Argentine clan, in particular to discuss a possible extension. Luis Campos is convinced that the brilliant left-footer can stay in Paris for several more seasons, and that is all Nasser Al-Khelaïfi dreams of. But Barça retains a special place in the heart of the seven-time Ballon d’Or, and at least a return next summer will be considered.
