When asked in an interview with ESPN about whether Lionel Messi can return to Barcelona in the future, Joan Laporta said: “I think, hope that Leo Messi story with Barcelona is not over yet.
“It’s still open, it’s our responsibility to make sure it has a more beautiful ending than it was. As a Barca president, I feel indebted to Messi.”
Messi left Barcelona in 2021 after failing to sign a new contract with them due to La Liga wages rules stopping the deal from happening.
He is currently contracted to PSG until 2023 and the Ligue 1 giants are trying to extend his deal, but Leo will wait until after the World Cup to make a decision on his future.
