Joan Laporta responds to Barcelona fan who asked him if Lionel Messi is returing to the club

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…

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.
