The father of Lionel Messi is understood to have reached out to Barcelona to discuss the possibility of a return to Camp Nou in the near future.
Messi left Paris Saint-Germain after Barcelona were unable to renew his contract, but things were tense at Parc des Princes. He was scolded by his fans in their 3-0 win over Bordeaux on Sunday after he failed to lead Paris through Real Madrid in the Champions League.
Rumors that Messi might return to Barcelona have been circulating for some time now, but things have escalated to a new level recently when Gerard Romero revealed that Messi’s father and agent, Jorge, have been in touch with Barcelona a few days ago.
Jorge is believed to have told former Camp Nou officials that the 34-year-old has a dream of returning to the club and has held several meetings by telephone to discuss the matter. No response has been made to Barcelona’s response but more news is expected in the coming days.
The belief is that Messi and his family are finding it difficult to settle in France and would like to return to Catalonia when the opportunity arises, but Sports has noted that Blaugrana officials are indifferent.
While it is clear that they have a lot of respect for Messi and do not hate him for leaving, the feeling is that Barcelona are determined to get back to a youth-focused position and do not want to pay the 34-year-old Messi who looks good. in physical degeneration.
Creativity still exists for Messi, who leads Ligue 1 with 11 assistants in 18 games, but his return from just two goals has dropped far below expectations.
