Last summer, Lionel Messi left FC Barcelona due to the Spanish club’s economic situation. As a result, they wouldn’t be able to comply with La Liga’s wage cap rules if the Catalan side had reached a contract extension with the 34-year-old.
The Argentine was left out of a place he had known for over 20 years. Messi had to find a club, and Paris Saint-Germain issued an anchor for him since few clubs could afford his wages.
However, after a tough first season with Les Parisiens, there are questions whether Messi should see out the final year of his contract with PSG. In an interview with Cadena COPE (via Marca), the adviser to Barcelona president Joan Laporta, Enric Masip, spoke about Messi possibly returning.
Masip stated that nothing is impossible in football. Nonetheless, there’s no such gesture from the Spanish club, which is still trying to overcome their financial issues caused by the previous administration.
“Messi’s return? Nothing is impossible, but there have been no gestures as such from the club,” Masip said. “Despite the economic situation, the club is looking at formulas to continue signing. Barcelona must sign the best.”
