FC Barcelona is still dealing with Lionel Messi. Now the club is making a case for a return of the superstar from Paris.
Lionel Messi is one of the best players in the history of FC Barcelona.
Nevertheless, the club icon moved to Paris Saint-Germain last year. The reason was above all the financial difficulties that plagued the club at the time.
Nevertheless, those in charge are dreaming of a return for the Argentine. “I would like to bring him back. It won’t be easy, but I think we can do it with the right strategy,” said President Joan Laporta in an interview with the American television station CBS.
Coach Xavi also harbours this desire. “If the question is: would I want him to come back? The answer is yes,” he said before the match against New York Red Bull.
Chances could well be there. At PSG, the 35-year-old only has a contract until next summer. Moreover, he has not been able to continue his brilliant times in France.
“We will do our best so that Messi can finish his career in Barcelona and be cheered by everyone,” Laporta promises.
