The president of FC Barcelona Joan Laporta has confirmed on Sunday evening, a potential return of the football star Lionel Messi to Barça this summer.

Now more untouchable within the PSG squad, Lionel Messi is close to returning to FC Barcelona this summer. The Catalan club has even confirmed contacts with the player’s entourage.

Moreover, reports say the player’s father and agent, Jorge Messi, has met Barca president several times lately.

When a supporter asked the Catalan leader: “Messi at Barça?”, the boss of the Spanish team replied: “yes”. Which obviously drove the Blaugrana fans crazy, who already imagine seeing La Pulga again in the jersey of the current La Liga leader.

Laporta said nothing more, but the outcome of this case should be known in the coming weeks, with the end of the season already looming.

Lionel Messi left FC Barcelona after the end of his contract. The 2022 world champion then joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2021. So far the Argentinian has scored 21 goals in 52 games with the French club.
