Report Details Why Barcelona Club Chief Has Lionel Messi Return as Top Priority

Lionel Messi will decide on his future once the 2022 FIFA World Cup is completed. The 35-year-old wants to have his head focused on winning Argentina the trophy that has long eluded him in his career. 

Nonetheless, while Messi plays the waiting game on his future, it doesn’t stop clubs from talking about or putting an offer on the table for the Argentine. After reports of a possible offer from PSG, it seems FC Barcelona could have a say. 

A report written on Friday by journalist Joan Domènech in Catalan newspaper El Periodico (h/t AS) claims there is a real possibility that Messi will re-join Barcelona for the 2023-24 season.

Furthermore, the reporting states that president Joan Laporta views the Argentinian’s return as of personal importance. As a result, the first step towards making it occur will be fixing their relationship, which broke down at the start of August 2021, when Messi decided to leave.

El Periodico says that Laporta remains “wounded” by Messi’s exit and is ready to do whatever it takes to bring him back home to Barcelona. He also has Xavi’s approval as some urge the Barcelona boss to “welcome Leo back into the dressing room and liberate him from the ill feeling that built up when he was captain.”
