In a stunning development, it seems that Lionel Messi may be on the verge of returning to Barcelona. According to journalist Gerard Romero, La Liga officials believe that the Argentine superstar has already agreed to return to his former club in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Barcelona Plan for Messi return
Barcelona had submitted an economic viability plan to La Liga in late March, which included the signing of Messi. However, certain aspects of the plan were disallowed, and the club is currently working on a fresh proposal to submit for approval.
Despite this, La Liga officials seem to believe that Messi’s return to Barcelona is just around the corner. Two years after leaving the club due to financial constraints. Reports suggest that officials are already working on marketing campaigns and images for Messi’s potential return, indicating that this development may have more substance than just mere rumors.
Barcelona’s Financial boost
If Messi does return to Barcelona, it would be a huge boost for the club. As they were forced to let him go due to financial constraints. The superstar went on to sign for PSG, but his contract with the French club expires at the end of the season. Talks of a renewal in Paris have reportedly fallen through, making a return to Barcelona a very real possibility.
Several figures at Barcelona, including players and the manager, have spoken openly about welcoming Messi back to the club. President Joan Laporta has also hinted at the possibility of a return.
The potential return of Messi could have significant financial implications for Barcelona. With reports suggesting that he could earn around €10 million per year. As well as a percentage of commercial profits generated from his return.
While La Liga still needs to approve the new economic plan. The fact that officials are already working on marketing campaigns for Messi’s return is a positive sign. It remains to be seen whether Messi will indeed return to Barcelona, but it’s clear that the prospect of his return is generating excitement among fans and officials alike.
