The greatest player in the history of Barcelona and some would say the best in history, Lionel Messi, made a decision not to continue beyond his existing contract in Paris, and he is expected to leave the club from the City of Lights at the end of this season.
The Argentinian striker was linked last summer with a possible return to Barcelona, especially after Juan Laporte brought in Xavi as head coach and with an impressive summer acquisition campaign in the form of Robert Lewandowski, Rafinha and Jules Conde.
In the Catalan capital, it is reported that those around Messi are convinced that he will not continue in the uniform of the French champions, but his return to Barcelona also does not seem close at the moment, mainly because of Gerard Pique.
As a reminder, according to the rumors, the Blaugrana stopper spoke with Laforte when he was elected president of the team and pushed for the sale of the flea.
Now, Messi's relatives claim that the Argentine star is not ready to return to the former team until Pique leaves the club.

The bad blood between the two was visible after Messi left Barcelona in favor of Paris Saint-Germain, and in the press conference in which he said goodbye to the club, the Spanish stopper appeared, according to Messi's entourage, "fake and did not cry".
Pique in the last season was pushed to the edge of Xavi's bench and certainly seems to be the last priority in the Spanish coach's brake position.
