FC Barcelona would like to sign Lionel Messi in the summer of 2023.
FC Barcelona are looking into bringing Lionel Messi back next year, the sources said 90 minutes they confirmed.
Messi emotionally left Barcelona in 2021 after 17 seasons and nearly 800 games after financial problems prevented FC Barcelona from giving him a new contract. He then moved to Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.
His first year in the French capital was one of the weakest of his career, but this season he seems to have returned to his best form, leading many Barça fans to hope that he will return to his youth club after all.
Messi’s current contract expires at the end of the season, but provides for the possibility of extending it for another year.
Sources close to Messi objected 90 minutes confirms that no decision has yet been made about his future, whether it be to leave PSG, return to Barça or go elsewhere. As with so many players, Messi’s focus is on the World Cup in Qatar as the 35-year-old probably only has one last chance to win football’s biggest title.
While Messi would be 36 when he returns to Barcelona at the end of the season, he would still be one of the club’s highest paid players if he moved. Although there are many financial problems to be resolved, Barcelona are confident that an agreement can be reached.
How 90 minutes discovered, FC Barcelona is currently discussing how to finance such a transfer. You’re looking for different ways to close a deal – it’s not just a pure “cash deal” – there are a number of options you’ll want to pursue.
