However, there is no contact according to Lionel Messi’s entourage. But the Mundo Deportivo newspaper confirms Barça’s intentions. The Catalan club is currently studying the return of the legend through various scenarios. The Blaugrana, for example, are considering a major tribute to Camp Nou, as well as club ambassador status for Lionel Messi. Or a simple return to the squad knowing that his contract expires next June. El Pulga would still have to be convinced that Barça would be attracted by a return, especially under Xavi’s orders.

Leo Messi has all the cards in his hands, and only he knows what will happen in 2023 in Paris, Barcelona… or wherever.
