This summer, Lionel Messi departed FC Barcelona after the La Liga side couldn’t fit the 34-year-old under to wage salary cap to comply with the league’s rules. As a result, the Argentine forward couldn’t remain as the news shocked the entire football world.
As Barcelona president Joan Laporta presented the return of Dani Alves at a press conference, the club chief spoke about other possible returns in the future, mainly hinting about the possibility of Messi coming back to the Spanish club in the future.
“A return of Lionel Messi or Andrès Iniesta?” I do not rule out their possible return; it happened with Dani Alves. Age is just a number,” Laporta said. “I can’t predict the future. They are still playing; they were great Barça players. We always have them in our hearts, but they have a contract with other clubs, and we must respect it. But you never know in life.”
