Joan Laporta dreams of re-signing Lionel Messi someday

Lionel Messi ended his 21-year spell with Barcelona.

The Argentinian superstar holds the record for number of goals and appearances for the Catalan club.

He has one year left on his PSG contract and could very well return to Barca next summer if Laporta plays his cards right.

Lionel Messi struggled at PSG last season scoring only six goals in Ligue 1.

Club president Joan Laporta believes Messi deserves a more beautiful ending at Barcelona.

“Messi was everything,” Laporta said exclusively to ESPN.

“To Barca, he’s been possibly its greatest player, the most efficient. To me he’s only comparable to Johan Cruyff. But it had to happen one day. We had to make a decision as a consequence of what we inherited. The institution is in charge of players, coaches.

“I would hope that the Messi chapter isn’t over. I think it’s our responsibility to try to … find a moment to fix that chapter, which is still open and hasn’t closed, so it turns out like it should have, and that it has a more beautiful ending.”
