Barcelona president Juan Laporta was confident in the return of Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain).
Messi is likely to leave Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at the end of this season. Initially, PSG pushed for a renewal of the contract with Messi. The situation was positive because Messi boasted the same class this season and the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
However, it was reported that negotiations at the end of the season had completely broken down. Afterwards, Messi criticized the club’s training and caused controversy when he visited Saudi Arabia.
Messi received a whopping £520 million (approximately 880 billion won) offer from Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal over two years. As a result, doubts grew that Messi’s visit to Saudi Arabia was due to a contract. The case was closed when Messi’s agent and father, Jorge Messi, revealed that he had not signed any contracts yet, but leaving PSG became a strong possibility.스포츠토토
In the midst of this, Barcelona president Laporta announced the signing of Messi. “We will do everything possible to help Messi come back,” Laporta said after Barcelona’s league title this season. Al Hilal? Barcelona is Barcelona. We can compete with all clubs.”
Messi was Barcelona itself. He played for Barcelona for 20 years from youth until he left the team in 2021. Messi became one of the best players in the world at Barcelona and when he left Barcelona he showed his love for his team with tears in his eyes. For Messi, Barcelona is obviously more than just a club.
President Laporta seems to be convinced of the recruitment because he knows the symbolism of Barcelona and Messi. “We definitely want Messi,” Laporta said. Barcelona is Messi’s home,” he said, emphasizing his specialness.
