Over the last few weeks, FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta and manager Xavi Hernández have discussed the possibility of Lionel Messi returning to the Spanish club next summer.
Messi signed a two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain, with an option for a third. However, the 35-year-old reportedly wants to focus on the FIFA World Cup in November, which is likely his last tournament.
The Argentine remains silent about his future and even gave the cold shoulder when asked by Deportes Cuatro whether Messi would be interested in returning to Barcelona when his deal with PSG expires.
