Will Lionel Messi (35) ever return to his old club? The Argentinian was under contract with FC Barcelona for 21 years – until the summer of 2021. From then on, the Spanish club and Lionel went their separate ways. In tears, the superstar announced his departure from the Catalans at a press conference. The path of the exceptional athlete then led him to Paris Saint-Germain in France. But is Leo making a comeback at Barça?
Speaking to the Spanish newspaper Sport, Jorge Messi, Lionel’s father, and agent said: “I don’t think Leo will play for Barça again. The conditions are just not there. We haven’t worked with Laporta [ Barça President] and there is no offer either.”
The questions arose as Leo’s contract at PSG expires after the season. At the beginning of the year, Paris said that an extension was only a matter of form – but nothing has happened since then. It was recently said that the reigning world champion had changed his mind and was tending to leave in the summer.
