While Lionel Messi has started the 2022/23 season in fine fashion, a difficult start to life at Paris Saint-Germain led many to suggest a romantic return to Barcelona was on the cards.

As many speculate whether the miracle move could happen, a new update details the football legend’s space around his future plans.

According to the latest information provided by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the Argentine icon will not make a decision on his future in the coming weeks or months.

Further details claim that Messi is currently focused on all things PSG and his national team, with no decisions or plans to be made on his part before the World Cup in Qatar later this year.

It has also been reported that despite the Parisians’ intention to offer him a new contract and Barcelona’s interest in re-signing him, the 35-year-old will not take the final call until 2023.

With former club president Josep Maria Bartomeu grossly mismanaging a number of aspects behind the scenes at Barca, it was financial mishandling that may have topped the list.

Ultimately, it was the very reason that led to the side having to release Messi, who was the club’s highest paid player, last year.

Despite the La Masia graduate agreeing to take a pay cut and willing to continue his untouchable legacy at the Camp Nou, the club was mismanaged to the point that the love affair for the ages had to come to an ugly end.

However, current Barcelona president Joan Laporta has spoken openly about the possibility of Messi’s fairytale comeback.

While only time will tell if the mega-transfer will happen, Messi’s main goal for now seems to be to shine for club and country.
