It’s Official! Barcelona back in for Lionel Messi


Barcelona have contacted the representatives of Lionel Messi over a possible free agent move as soon as the next transfer window.

Messi left Barcelona in 2021 as a free agent, following the failure of the two sides to reach an agreement over his wages, which would have further complicated the Club’s dire financial situation.

Currently, the 35 year-old earns a net salary of $41 million, and could earn more should he decide to sign his option for a further year with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

On Friday, Barcelona vice president Rafael Yuste confirmed moves have been initiated by the club and talks opened between the camps.

“Leo and his family know the affection I have for them,” Yuste said. “I participated in the negotiations which unfortunately did not lead to a certain result.

“I’ve always had and I have this thorn in my side that Leo couldn’t continue at our club.

“Messi knows how much we appreciate him. I would love for him to come back. We’re in contact, of course, with them.”
