FINALLY! Barcelona Fans Hopeful for Messi Reunion as Laporta Speaks Out
Barcelona president Joan Laporta has provided an update on Lionel Messi’s potential return to the club, stating that he intends to improve the relationship between the Argentine and the Blaugrana.
The statement comes amid persistent rumors that Messi could leave Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and reunite with his former team.
Messi left Barcelona in August 2021 after 21 years at the club, signing a two-year contract with PSG.
However, rumors have persisted that he could return to the Camp Nou, with the club going through a period of rebuilding under Xavi Hernandez.
Speaking to the media on Friday, Laporta said that he wants to “improve the current relationship between Messi and Barça.”
This comment comes after reports that Messi was unhappy with the way he was treated by the club during his departure last year.
Laporta’s statement will give hope to Barcelona fans who have been eager to see Messi return to the club.
The Argentine is a legend at the Camp Nou, having won ten La Liga titles, seven Copa del Rey trophies, and four Champions League titles during his time there.
However, PSG are also keen to keep hold of the 35-year-old, with reports suggesting that they are in talks with his representatives over a new contract.
Despite his age, Messi remains one of the best players in the world and would be a valuable asset to any team.
It remains to be seen whether Messi will stay at PSG or return to Barcelona, but Laporta’s comments will certainly give fans of the Catalan club hope that a reunion is possible.
With the team currently rebuilding and looking to regain their status as one of Europe’s top clubs, the addition of Messi would be a massive boost.
As the transfer window approaches, it will be interesting to see what happens with Messi’s future. Barcelona, PSG, and a host of other clubs will undoubtedly be keeping a close eye on developments, with fans eagerly waiting to see where the Argentine will end up next season.
