Barcelona coach, Xavi Hernandez has confirmed that they held talks with La Liga authorities over a possible return of Lionel Messi from Ligue 1 club, Paris Saint-Germain.
The Argentine football legend who left the club in 2021 to join Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer, will be out of contract with the French club at the end of this season.
Confirming that they are interested in bringing Messi back to Camp Nou, Xavi told reporters;
“Yes [Barcelona met with La Liga], but not only for the possible arrival of Leo. We’ll see in order to improve the squad for next year, but it is not the important issue; there is still a league to win.
“Tomorrow we have a key game and this is the important issue. This is a matter of Mateu (Alemany) and he informs us, but, in theory, everything is going well. In the end, we don’t know if it’s going to happen or not. It’s very soon to talk about it. We are focused on the match against Betis and on winning La Liga, which would give us a lot of stability. We will talk about possible signings.”
