“We will remove Joan Laporte if Lionel Messi comes back to Spain” – Matias Messi
Just hours before PSG played OM in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France, Lionel Messi’s brother made a shocking announcement about his future at the Vélodrome stadium.
The Spanish media have been spreading the rumour for a while that Lionel Messi would return to FC Barcelona to finish his career there. Also, the president of the Catalan team, Joan Laporta, and his coach, Xavi Hernandez, have made it clear that they want Messi to come back to the Blaugranas when his contract with Paris Saint-Germain ends on June 30.
Publications like Sport that are seen as close to Barcelona say that Messi’s father and agency may already be working with Barcelona officials to get the star back with his old coaching staff. Messi is 35 years old now. There was a story about this in the newspaper. But the important person seems to know nothing about any of these conversations.
Lionel Messi won’t be going back to Barcelona
Lionel Messi was forced to leave his favourite team, FC Barcelona, and sign with Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2021. Messi had been with FC Barcelona for 20 years before that.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, whose current contract was about to end, got a letter from the new president of Barcelona, Joan Laporta, saying that he would not be able to accept a new contract. Also, it seems that the 2022 World Champion doesn’t like Laporta very much.

In fact, Matias Messi, the brother of the PSG player, has made it clear that a return to Barcelona is not likely unless the famous team decides to let Joan Laporta go.
During a live Twitch broadcast, this claim was made. “We have no plans to go back to Barcelona right now. If we do come back, we will clean the area very well. Especially to reject Joan Laporta as an unappreciative man “The older brother of Messi said. Paris SG knows what to expect because of this.
