Lionel Messi has stated that he would like to return to Barcelona in the future, though this may be after he has retired as a player.
During discussions to extend his relatively large contract, the 34-year-old sensationally left Camp Nou during the summer as the extent of Barcelona’s financial crisis became clear.
To cut a long story short, Barça were unable to offer Messi a new contract due to financial constraints, and were forced to let him leave for free – an unthinkable possibility for even the most ardent supporters of the club.
Messi quickly signed a two-year contract with Ligue 1 heavyweights PSG, forming the world’s most deadly front line with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
The possibility of Messi returning to Barcelona, on the other hand, seems unlikely to fade away.
