FC Barcelona would reportedly consider re-signing Lionel Messi on a free transfer in 2023. This will happen only if the attacker decides against penning a new contract at Paris Saint-Germain.

The 34-year-old left Barcelona on a free transfer last summer due to the Catalan giant’s financial problems. Messi ultimately penned a two-year deal with PSG. The Argentian forward finished the campaign with 11 goals and 14 assists in 34 appearances in all competitions. But he only scored six goals in Ligue 1 and faced criticism for his performances.

The attacker has already confirmed that he will stay at PSG next season. Though, his contract expires at the end of the next season. He has the option to extend it to a further 12 months.”Next season will be way better for me with Paris Saint-Germain, I’m sure. It was not easy after that crazy summer,” Messi recently told TyC Sports.


Yes, the reunion is possible. In a recent interview with L’Esportiu, Laporta said: “We would’ve liked Messi to stay, but it wasn’t to be. And it wasn’t to be because of La Liga’s Financial Fair Play rules and PSG’s offers. When players are like that, they find they cannot leave because the deals are worth many millions of euros.“. Messi scored 672 goals and registered 302 assists in 777 appearances for Barca. According to some reports, the reunion would be possible.

Xavi, who at the moment controls all the transfers would like his former teammate to return. The report also claims a number of Premier League teams or a move to MLS is also a possibility.

Although, Jorge Messi also said in an interview last month that he was hopeful of his son returning to Barcelona before he retires. “I hope it [happens], some day,” Jorge Messi told Jijantes FC. The forward has won 10 La Liga titles, 4 Copa del Rey trophies, and 4 Champions League trophies at Barcelona. Well if Messi returns, it will be a happy ending for his playing career.
