Barcelona manager Xavi on Messi's return to Camp Nou

Xavi on future prospect of Lionel Messi returning to Barcelona.

The Argentine forward will be out of contract next summer with PSG and Barcelona vice-president believes club could bring him back to Camp Nou.

The 35-year-old was linked with a return to Barcelona this summer but that move couldn’t materialise due to Barca’s financial constraints.

Messi endured a difficult debut season with PSG scoring just 11 goals and providing 15 assists for the Parisians.

In his last 12 games, he has bagged seven goals and eight assists for the Ligue 1 giants.

Barcelona manager Xavi plays down the possibility of Messi’s return to the Camp Nou.

“With Leo, let’s see, but it’s not the moment to talk about it right now,” Xavi said in a news conference.

“You know the love I have for him. He is a friend and I will always wish him the best. Barca is his home, but we’re not doing him any favours speaking about [his future], either.

“Let’s leave him in peace to enjoy his time in Paris and wish him all the best.”
