Conflicting reports regarding the meeting between Juan Laporte and Lionel Messi's father.

While in the Catalan media they say that there are talks at a high rate regarding the return of the world champion to the team, in Argentina they claim that there are no talks, they doubt that a meeting took place and say that even if there was - there are no negotiations. Yesterday it was reported in "Radio Catalonia" that Jorge Messi met with Laporte regarding the

return possible of his son to the club where he grew up and where he played until about a year and a half ago. Reports later appeared that Leo Messi himself discussed the matter with the coach and his former partner in the dressing room, Xavi.

All well and good, except that senior journalist Gaston Adol, compatriot of Jorge and Leo Messi, tweeted Tonight: "The script hasn't changed.

Leo Messi continues to negotiate the extension of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain and there are currently no contacts with any other team in Europe. Jorge Messi is in Argentina at the moment."

In recent days, by the way, Messi's brother attacked Barcelona and his father was interviewed and said that "

The truth will come out sooner or later.

Is this at all a spin from the creator of Laporte's associates, who navigate the Catalan media?

The reports of the last day come against the background of the serious entanglement of the president of Barcelona.

As part of the affair, it was discovered that the club paid 1.4 million euros to Jose Maria Enriquez Negreira for "technical advice", during his tenure as vice president of the referees' union between 2016 and 2018.

The president of La Liga, Javier Tabas, said the other day: "There is great concern regarding the issue of Negreira and Barca. We will not act as long as there is a police investigation, but we cannot ignore the complaints. We will investigate and Barca has also started an internal investigation. We are waiting for explanations and meanwhile Barcelona has not explained anything Laforte should resign if he is not able to clearly explain the payments."
