Argentine Insider Reveals |
Messi decision made!
I can’t imagine what would happen in Barcelona if HIS return was really perfect…
Lionel Messi (35), the prodigal son of FC Barcelona, is said to be about to make his comeback in the Catalan metropolis: at BARÇA!
Argentine journalist Veronica Brunati reports that Messi will return to Barcelona on July 1, 2023 – when his contract with Paris St. Germain expires.
His departure from Barca was more than dramatic: after 21 years and 672 goals for the club, “Leo” said in the summer of 2021 in tears. bye.
The Argentine super dribbler even wanted to do without a lot of money. The club planned to cut his salary by 30 percent due to the tight financial situation. The Messi clan agreed “on behalf of the club” during contract negotiations in spring 2020.
But, as the Spanish newspaper “El Mundo” reported a few days ago, Messi also made crazy demands for his contract extension. The end is known. According to “El Mundo”, the then president Bartomeu refused in the summer of 2020 to accept a symbolic exit clause of 10,000 euros (!) in the new contract and an additional bonus only for the contract extension (10 million euros).
Messi then moved to Paris in the summer of 2021 and got off to a rocky start in France. And last November he told TyC Sports: “What is certain is that we will live in Barcelona again and our life will take place there. It is what my wife wants and what I want. I don’t know what will happen if my contract with Paris expires.”
The two sides are said to have come closer together in recent months. Messi would have made peace with Laporta – Bartomeu’s successor.
Barcelona vice-president Eduard Romeu recently said on Ràdio Catalunya’s radio program “El Matí” – when asked about a possible commitment from the Argentine: “Since it would be a free transfer, it is certainly possible.” But in the end it was “a technical decision,” Romeu said.
The return of the “Messiah” to Barcelona – it seems more and more real…
