These are key days to know what will become of Lionel Messi's life. After his stage in Paris Saint Germain, a club that did not know how to enjoy it or could put together a competitive environment beyond the cluster of stars, and with the millionaire offer on the table of Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia, this Monday there was a key step that can twist the future of the captain of the Argentine National Team world champion in Qatar. Are you returning to the club of your whole life?
It is that Jorge Messi, father and representative of the Flea, met with the president of Barcelona, Joan Laporta. According to versions handled by Spanish newspapers, the leader would have already approved the financial viability plan by La Liga and is in a position to make a formal offer to the player who changed the history of the club, which made him win 34 titles.
With Leo still in Paris, Jorge Messi approached Laporta's home in the early hours of Monday, a few blocks from the Camp Nou. This was recorded by journalist Toni Juanmartí, who published the images on his Twitter account.
Later, with a larger journalistic guard, Juanmartí himself published some statements by the patriarch of the family of the best player in history. "I would love for Leo to return to Barca, of course."
He continued: "We talked the other day but about nothing in particular." Asked if a deal would be close, he said: "There is nothing." He added: "We still have to talk about lots of things."
