Lionel Messi will reportedly re-join Barcelona when his current contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in 2023.

Lionel Messi joined Barcelona in his youth and spent 17 highly successful years in their first team.

But his time at Barca came to an end in 2021. Messi wanted to extend his stay but Barca’s financial problems prevented him from doing so.

Lionel Messi will reportedly rejoin Barcelona when his current contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in 2023.

He joined Paris Saint-Germain on a two-year contract and is currently doing well at the French club.

But it looks like his time in France will come to an end at the end of the season.

That’s because Argentine journalist Veronica Brunati has announced that she will rejoin Barca when the 2022/23 campaign ends.

Can Barcelona afford to re-sign Lionel Messi?

Barcelona vice president Eduard Romeu opened the door for Messi to return to the club last week.

“Financially it would be possible because if he came back it would be as a free agent,” Catalunya Ràdio told talkSPORT.

“But it’s a decision the coach and the player have to make. It doesn’t suit me [to make those decisions], but it would be viable. Even if I don’t have it in the budget.

“He is an icon of the club. This will always be his home, but it will be a technical decision [if he returns].”
