Jorge Messi, the father and agent of Leo Messi, has opened the door to the Argentine player's return to FC Barcelona after a meeting with Barça president Joan Laporta. "There is nothing concrete," said Jorge Messi. "[Leo] I would love for him to return" to Barça. "We'll see. It's an option. We have to talk about a lot of things," he continued in response to questions from journalists outside Laporta's home.
Messi has been disassociated from Paris Saint Germain and has an offer of the order of 400 million from a club in Saudi Arabia and a second from Inter Miami, which competes in the MLS. The desire of the footballer and his family, however, is to return to Barcelona after two years ago he had to leave the Camp Nou by force due to the critical economic situation of Barça.
The numbers of the Barça club continue to be terrible and its viability plan to redirect the situation is pending to be reviewed and accepted by the League. The wage bill is a difficult obstacle to overcome in the short term and complicates Barça's intentions with Messi. The player, in any case, has already responded through his father to the request made from Barça and who insisted that Messi had to express his intention to return to the Camp Nou,
Xavi is the main interested in recovering Messi because he understands that his team would make a leap in quality that would allow him to compete also in Europe after winning the League and the Super Cup.
