From week to week, it seems that the possibility of Lionel Messi's return to Barcelona becomes more and more tangible.

In "Mundo Deportivo" today (Friday) published several different articles dealing with this, and according to the Spanish media body, "this is a real option for the coming summer".

The flea's contract at Paris Saint-Germain is of course coming to an end soon, and in Barcelona they started "pulling strings" in order to bring him back.

The Catalans will not even have to pay a transfer fee for the star.

President Juan Laporte has already met with the Flea's father, Jorge Messi, in an attempt to open the door to a comeback after the difficult departure in 2021.

Coach Xavi also works behind the scenes, and maintains telephone contact with the player with whom he collaborated for many years on the pitch at Camp Nou.

"Xavi thinks this is a very real possibility, and is already thinking about where to insert him in his lineup," it says.

Quite a few Barcelona players have already spoken publicly on the issue, and expressed their desire to see Messi return to the club.

The only problem, at the moment, is financial: Barcelona is already in many difficulties that prevented it, among other things, from registering Gabi's contract.

The Catalans will have to greatly thin the squad, it seems, so that the transfer of the flea becomes legal and possible.

However, Paris Saint-Germain are not giving up so quickly.

Messi's contract has an option for another season, and the club "will do everything to keep him", according to "Mundo Deportivo".

The French champion has already conveyed to Jorge Messi a message according to which if his son is interested in a higher salary, he will receive it.

"Leo knows that Barcelona is pressuring him and his surroundings," it was written.

"Laforte is going crazy with the desire to get him back."
