Lionel Messi left Barcelona for PSG last summer but it doesn’t look like that will be the end of his story with the Catalan giants. After being spotted in Spain last week, the Argentine’s father and agent Jorge Messi has fueled rumors of his son’s potential return to Camp Nou by admitting he hopes that happens one day.
In a video posted on the official Twitter page of Spanish football journalist Gerard Romero, Jorge Messi was seen leaving the airport in Spain and heading for a car. A fan asked him about his son’s future and the 64-year-old responded by saying he hopes he returns to Barcelona one day.
Lionel Messi might have left the Blaugrana but it has always looked like his chapter with the club will surely resume at some point in the future. The attacker wasn’t willing to part ways with the club in the first place and Barca wished to hold on to him as well but couldn’t due to their financial constraints.
Recall that shortly after leaving for PSG, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner revealed that he would love to return to Camp Nou one day.
He said during an interview with Marca in November 2021:
“I always said that at some point I will return to Barcelona because it is my home and because I am going to live there. And obviously if I can contribute and help the club, I would love to come back.”
Lionel Messi claimed multiple honors at Camp Nou, including four Champions League crowns, 10 La Liga titles, seven Copa del Reys and many more. He also won six Ballon d’Or awards in the Barca jersey.
