After Barcelona confirmed the ‘early championship’, Lionel Messi (36, Paris Saint-Germain) said he would return. President Juan Laporta himself opened up about the recruitment of Messi.
According to European메이저사이트 transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano on the 15th (Korean time), Laporta said, “We will do everything we can to bring Messi back to Barcelona.”
Barcelona beat Espanyol 4-2 in the 34th round of the 2022-23 Primera Liga held at the RCDE Stadium in Barcelona, Spain. Robert Lewandowski’s multi-goal brought three points as Fedry and Kunde shook the net.
On this day, he succeeded in winning the Primera Liga early by defeating Espanyol. He reached the top for the 27th time in his career. It was a splendid achievement in 4 seasons after coach Valverde in the 2018-19 season. It was the first win after Messi left in 2021.

Barcelona had a disappointing record in this season’s cup competition. They were eliminated from the group stage in the UEFA Champions League, and in the round of 16 playoffs in the Europa League, suffered defeats in the Copa del Rey and Supercopa de España. Now that the league championship has been confirmed, we plan to accelerate preparations for next season in earnest.
The biggest challenge for Barcelona this summer is Messi. Messi tried to sign a new contract with Barcelona two years ago, but was unable to sign due to financial problems. He left for France on a 2+1 year contract with Paris Saint-Germain. Currently, the one-year extension option is unexploited, and he is thinking about his next destination as a free agent (FA).

There were rumors of an agreement with the Saudi Arabian team, but Messi’s father drew the line, saying, “Everything is fake news.” According to European media, Messi prioritizes staying in Europe over the Middle East. The Primera Liga secretariat explained that Barcelona can bring Messi if it meets the salary cap conditions.
Barcelona vice-president Rafael Youste also wanted to re-sign Messi. After Laporta’s remarks, he said: “Messi is one of many friends who are celebrating the Primera Liga title today. I think Messi will be happy with our title too. I hope Messi returns to Barcelona.”
