Xavi Hernández, Barcelona coach, has asked Joan Laporta, president of the Barça club, to study the hiring of Leo Messi for the end of this season, for the summer of 2023-24. The coach, who maintains an excellent relationship with the Argentine star, is convinced that his return can contribute a lot to the Catalan entity, both financially and in sporting terms, as he still considers that he still has a lot of rope. The signing of Messi can also serve to park the differences that arose as a result of his departure from the club and to close the circle of a relationship that began when he was 13 years old, as a child. The goal would be for him to be able to hang up his boots also dressed as a Barça player.

Leo Messi left Barcelona in 2021 through the back door, after a long renewal process that did not materialize. His departure was a wound in the entity that ended up affecting all spheres. The first, in the economic one because while PSG, the club that hired him, won many sponsorship contracts that helped him increase his commercial income, the Barcelona It was stuck when it was left without a reference, without a name, without a brand with which the companies wanted to be commercially related. Barça suffered the absence of Leo and the coffers were weakened.

At a sporting level it was also affected. For the first time in two decades, the team finished the season in white, thus sealing the end of the culé hegemony that had been established in the last decade. Barça had problems scoring goals, ran dry and suffered unspeakably to end up qualifying for the next edition of the Champions League, the great challenge set. Xavi It gave a new air to the team that survived as best it could to alleviate the lack that Messi had stopped scoring.


Although two years have passed and Messi He would already be 36 years old, Xavi Hernández considers that Leo can still offer a lot in sports, both in terms of experience and game. The coach believes it is feasible for the Argentine to return to the team to join and lead the project within his football reality.

Then there is a more global aspect: Xavi considers that his arrival can be key to finish refloating the club. Barça lost hierarchy at a world level when it lost Messi and now it can recover the lost ground and, at the same time, close that circle that began in 2000. That Messi return to Barça to play the last, or the last years, of his sports career It would be excellent news for the future of the club, which would recover an asset.

For all this, Xavi has transmitted to the president and to the technical secretariat the idea of ​​signing Messi when his contract with PSG ends so that he can continue playing the last years of his sports career in the Barcelona. The club is activating on this idea.


The PSG has transmitted him to Leo Messi his desire to extend his contract beyond 2023, when your contract ends. The French club has verified the great sporting and economic benefits that having Messi in its ranks and wants to extend this relationship. For now, Messi has not said anything because his wish is to start the season and see what happens in the World Cup, the great challenge of this season.
