Jorge Messi, Lionel's father, is in Barcelona and confirmed to local journalists on Monday that his son intends to return to the Blaugrana. "Leo wants to come back, the possibility exists and we believe he can come back," said the father, who is also an agent for the world champion.
This morning it was also reported that Barcelona received the green light from La Liga leaders regarding the financial aspect of bringing back Messi and it seems that it is only a matter of time before talks to bring the Argentine back to Barcelona are accelerated, which for its part will have to sell a player or two in order to make room in the salary cap ahead of his return. In an attempt to pressure Messi and his family, meanwhile the Saudis delivered an ultimatum with a strong message.

The GOAL website reported that Messi wanted to stop negotiations with the Saudis about his possible move to the country and also told his people that he wanted to wait with the possibility of moving to the Middle East until the summer of 2024, but the Saudis, who were very close to finalizing the terms of the "flea", were very surprised by the answer and made it clear to the representatives of the star that the offer will not be valid next year as well - as is known, this is the largest contract in the history of the industry, estimated at 500 million euros per season, according to AFP at the time, Probably from the Al Hilal group.
At the same time, according to Catalan journalist Gerard Romero, one of the reasons that led the Messi family to leave Paris Saint-Germain after two years was that one of his sons did not acclimatize to the city and "suffered a lot in Paris." Hence, it is Lionel's wife and the mother of his children, Antonella, who is pushing to return to Barcelona, the city where they have lived since leaving Argentina at a very young age and where the children also grew up until moving to Paris in the summer of 2021.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona president Joan Laporta is determined to complete Messi's return to the club after parting ways in discordant tones two years ago and will work to sign him for two years. The official offer will be submitted soon, as stated Barcelona are also awaiting developments regarding the players in the squad in light of the need to sell one or two players.
