Messi to Barcelona: Report Suggests Positive Outcome for Summer Signing

Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi could return to FC Barcelona this summer. FOX Sports Argentina’s Veronica Brunati reported on Monday that steps are in place for a Camp Nou return.

Brunati notes that Barcelona will do everything possible to sign him, which club president Joan Laporta stated in an interview on Sunday. Additionally, the Spanish club wants to close the signing in June and Messi intends to return.

The information also reveals a principal agreement reached to start formal negotiations. Messi’s salary will be less than what he earns at PSG, but his return would not be due to economic reasons but sentimental ones: Barcelona is his home.

Despite the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner leaving the Catalan side in tears, Brunati says Laporta has restored relationships with Messi and his camp.

La Liga might be the only hurdle that Barcelona needs to clear, but the Argentine journalist reports that the league will give the club the green light to approve the feasibility plan, which will be approved on May 19.

Barcelona has officially asked La Liga to provide a written document stating that “Leo Messi can be registered,” which will be sent to the player to guarantee that what happened two years ago will not happen again.

So it appears the wheels for Messi’s return are in motion.
