Barca President Opens Door To Messi's Return
Barcelona president Joan Laporta has hinted that Lionel Messi may make a sensational return to the Camp Nou. In an interview with ESPN, Laporta said he hoped that Messi would return to the club, stating, “the Messi chapter isn't over.” "I think it's our responsibility to try to ... find a moment to fix that chapter, which is still open and hasn't closed, so it turns out like it should have, and that it has a more beautiful ending, Joan Laporta," FC Barcelona President. Messi departed the Camp Nou in tears last summer after the club could no longer afford to give him a new deal. Messi later signed a two-year deal with PSG, which will expire next year. Reports in Spain suggest that current Barcelona manager Xavi has requested the club to re-sign the Argentine. Such a move would likely be Messi’s final transfer of his career, with him likely retiring at the Camp Nou.
