Lionel Messi’s future is unclear.
The Argentine signed a two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2021.
It was previously believed that Messi would extend his stay at the French club.
However, Messi has not yet signed a contract extension and talk of his future has escalated with his current deal set to expire in just a few months’ time.
A number of clubs have been linked with a move for Messi.
Inter Miami have made their interest known, while several Saudi Arabia fans are also said to be pursuing his signature.
Interestingly, a sensational return to Barcelona has also been mooted in recent times.
Barcelona fans are no doubt excited about the possibility of arguably the greatest player of all-time returning to the club.
One recently took the opportunity to ask Barca’s president, Joan Laporta, about the possibility of Messi re-signing in the summer.
“Lionel Messi to Barcelona?” A fan asks Laporta while he is posing for pictures.
“Yes”, Laporta replied with a smile on his face. Watch the exchange below…
❗️A fan: “Messi to Barça.”
🚨🗣️ Joan Laporta: “Yes. 😉”

It seems Barcelona will try their best to ensure Messi is one of their players once more.
They will have to significantly cut costs before a deal can go through, though.
