Messi’s father denied any transfer move to Barcelona this summer.
Barcelona are not leaving Messi from their wishlist and recently, we found a lead in this story. Jorge Messi, the father, and agent of former Barcelona player Lionel Messi was in Barcelona. The trip took place soon after a meeting with PSG over a new contract for the Argentine skipper.
Jorge Messi said that his son returning to Barça seemed impossible, while also claiming that there had been no talks with president Joan Laporta nor there was any offer on the table.
According to Catalunya Radio, Jorge Messi met with Barcelona president Laporta and several topics were discussed during the chat.
The report also adds the first topic discussed between the two parties was the future of Messi and a possible return to Barcelona.
The World Cup-winning captain will see his contract expiring with PSG in the summer and is yet to renew. Some rumors are saying that the 35-year-old star intends to continue in Paris while some state that he is not in favour of renewal with the Ligue 1 champions.
Apart from the discussion about the 7-time Ballon d’Or’s future, Laporta is also understood to have spoken to Jorge Messi about the club’s tribute act for Messi.
Talks of a possible statue outside Camp Nou have been doing the rounds for a while and those ideas might have been presented to Messi’s agent and father.
