Barcelona defender wants Messi back at Camp Nou

Ronald Araujo has made it clear he would love to see Lionel Messi back at Barcelona amid speculation the GOAT could return next season after his contract at PSG expires

In a recent interview, the center-back, who is presently injured, discussed the Argentina international. “If I were a sporting director, I would sign Messi for Barcelona,” he remarked.

Araujo also discussed new coach Xavi and what he has learnt from playing under the Barcelona icon.

They have been working with him for some time. At the beginning it was a little difficult, because Xavi comes with new ideas, with things that were not being done in recent years here,” he said.

“He is trying to bring back Barcelona’s philosophy and I think that now is when the fruits of the work we have been doing since his arrival are being reaped.

“When Xavi arrived, I had to continue learning, because when I went up to the first team, the Barcelona philosophy of playing with three midfielders had been lost. With the arrival of the coach, I continued to grow and today I feel very comfortable.”

Barcelona has suffered a significant setback as a result of Araujo’s injury, since the Uruguay international has emerged as an important player for the Catalans. He will be out for three months after undergoing surgery for a thigh injury.
