Is Messi going to return to Barcelona?
Lionel Messi’s return to Barcelona has been a hot topic of speculation in recent months. After leaving the club in 2021 due to financial constraints, Messi has been linked with a move back to Camp Nou on several occasions.
In June 2023, there was a major update on the situation. Messi’s father, Jorge, met with Barcelona president Joan Laporta to discuss the possibility of a return. Jorge later told Jijantes FC that “we trust that Messi can return.”
However, there have been some reports that the deal is not as close as it seems. According to Carlos Monfort of Jijantes, Messi is “further away” from doing a deal with Barcelona than he was before the meeting with Laporta. This is because Barcelona is still not in a position to offer Messi a contract.
It is still too early to say whether Messi will return to Barcelona. However, the latest update suggests that a deal is not as straightforward as it once seemed. Barcelona will need to sell some players and reduce their wage bill before they can afford to sign Messi.
As of July 20, 2023, it has been confirmed that Messi will not return to Barcelona. He has instead signed for MLS side Inter Miami.
