Exclusive to Lionel Messi

With Lionel Messi ‘s connection with PSG entirely shattered in recent days, the possibilities of him returning to FC Barcelona in the summer have increased significantly. While a move is still subject to La Liga’s approval of the Catalans’ economic viability plan, it is the only likely stumbling block at the moment. However the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is said to be eager to return to his former club.

Guti,Ex-Real Madrid icon, believes Messi must not join Barca

Undoubtedly, there is a lot of excitement among many supporters over the potential return of their former captain and club legend. Some former sportsmen and pundits, though, appear to be opposed to such a move. Former Argentina superstar and World Cup winner Mario Kempes recently persuaded Messi not to return to Barça. Guti, a former Real Madrid player, has said that Messi would be better off not returning to his old haunts because Barcelona are not in a position to win the UEFA Champions League with or without the Argentine.

“If I were Messi, I wouldn’t go back to Barcelona. He already achieved everything there. It’s too big of a challenge at this moment. Now, with or without him, Barça won’t win the Champions League,” Guti said on El Chiringuito TV.

Barcelona, for their part, is working tirelessly behind the curtain to make Messi’s homecoming a reality. The club has already submitted their economic viability plan to La Liga for approval. Thus once approved, they will present the legend with a formal contract offer. For the time being, however, everything is dependent on the league and their willingness to accept Barça’s viability plan. At the moment, FC Barcelona is the best positioned club to be Messi’s next team. The conversations between Barça and La Liga are ‘moving’. Leo is only thinking about Barcelona.
