Barcelona have three players blocking Lionel Messi return with PSG star ‘open to it’

Barcelona saw Lionel Messi write his name into the club’s folklore before his move to PSG back in the summer transfer window of 2021.

 

Barcelona have three players currently blocking a potential return for Lionel Messi, according to reports. The PSG star has been linked with a move back to the Nou Camp for some time now, with cries for a Hollywood homecoming growing louder in the wake of his old side’s failure to get out o the Champions League group stages. However, while the 35-year-old is open to returning to La Liga, there’s still no guarantee it will happen.
Barcelona had no choice but to let Messi go for free in 2021, having been unable to come up with the finances required to keep their idol at the Nou Camp for the rest of his career.

The forward is now in his second season at PSG, where he’s dazzling alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe with 10 goals to his name this season already.

But, according to the Daily Mail, Messi is open to a sensational move back to Barcelona come the end of the campaign.

The veteran’s family still miss living in the city, regardless of how nice Paris is, and it’s said they’d ‘welcome’ the chance to return to Catalonia after two years away.

And Messi could also return for financial reasons, knowing a move back to Barcelona would be ‘lucrative’ for himself due to the money he’d receive in wages and marketing.
