Messi’s Return To Barcelona Not Ruled Out By Xavi

The Blaugrana manager, a former teammate of the mercurial Argentine, is open to future talks with an all-time greatest.

Lionel Messi’s return to Barcelona remains a posibility in Xavi’s eyes, but the current Blaugrana manager is hesitant to get too far into that debate at the moment because any deal in 2022 remains “impossible.”

This is due to the fact that a seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is still under contract with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain for another year. 

If no extension to that contract is reached, the Argentine superstar could become available for free agency again two years after moving from Camp Nou to Parc des Princes, with Barcelona president Joan Laporta already admitting that he is interested.
