Lionel Messi return is likely possible claims Barcelona VP

Lionel Messi returning to Barcelona is becoming economically viable.

The Argentine superstar will be out of contract next summer and could join Barcelona on a free transfer.

The 35-year-old forward would only make the decision after the World Cup and Barcelona’s vice-president Eduard Romeu believes the club could afford him next summer.

“It would be possible financially because if he returned, it would be as a free agent,” Romeu told Catalunya Radio when asked whether the club could afford to bring Messi back.

“But it’s a decision which has to be made by the coaching staff and the player. It doesn’t correspond to me [to make those decisions], but it would be viable.”

“Without boasting, we have saved Barca, but the club is not economically healthy yet,” the vice president added.

“There’s still a need for austerity, and there is a lot of work to do. [I predict] Barca will be healthy within five years [of our mandate]. In the ’24-25 season, we will be at the level we should be.”
