Barcelona chief Laporta may re-unite Barca and Messi again

Messi left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain two years ago. However his contract set to expire at the end of June, a return is possible. The opportunity to add to his amazing aggregate of 672 goals, 778 appearances, and 35 titles while playing under the guidance of his old teammate and colleague Xavi Hernandez is an appealing proposal. Laporta recently met with Messi’s father, Jorge, and is working hard to re-unite  Barca and Messi again. When asked by a fan about Messi’s Barca transfer, Laporta simply said, “Yes”. Barcelona’s president spoke to the media at length on Monday to defend Barca after prosecutors in Spain accused them with corruption.

Laporta debunks corruption claims with evidence

Between 2001 and 2018, Barcelona paid €7.3 million (£6.5 million) to the company of Jose Mara Enriquez Negreira, the former vice-president of Spanish football’s referees committee. They have been charged with claims of sports corruption, business corruption, false administration, and fabrication of commercial records. However FC Barcelona insist everything was legal. Barca claims the money was exchanged in exchange for technical and refereeing advice, not to try to influence officials. The subject is currently dominating the headlines in Spain. Still the possibility of Messi returning remains an important topic as well.

Messi scored 20 goals and 18 assists in 35 PSG games this season and remains an appealing option for Barcelona. He had no desire to leave Barcelona in August 2021 and only agreed to do so owing to financial restrictions. Barcelona’s challenges in adhering with financial fair play standards persist. But the club is optimistic about reaching an arrangement with Messi this time.
