In a major development with regard to Barcelona’s pursuit of former captain Lionel Messi, the Blaugrana have started negotiations to bring back the 35-year-old to Camp Nou according to Cat Radio.
The footballing world was shocked when Messi departed Barcelona last year, with the Catalans being unable to renew his contract due to the financial situation.
PSG, for their part, plan to keep hold of the 35-year-old global icon and want to hand him a new contract. However, the report states that the chances of Messi securing a return to Barça are quite high.
The relationship between Messi and Laporta has not been at its best due to the manner of the former’s exit last summer. So, the Blaugrana are reportedly working on repairing the relationship quietly while also laying the groundwork to welcome back the club icon to Camp Nou.
With talks between Messi’s camp and Barcelona already underway, there may well be a chance that the little magician returns to Catalonia for one final flourish.
