Spanish Primera Liga FC Barcelona prepares for the return of Lionel Messi (36). Spain Sport reported on the 16th (Korean time) that “Barcelona has requested a document from the Primera Liga Secretariat that guarantees Messi’s registration in the squad.”
Barcelona have decided to return Messi, who is nearing the end of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain in June.
The problem turned out to be that due to Barcelona’s financial situation, Messi could not be registered in the first team under the current environment. Last month, Javier Tebas, president of the Spanish Professional Football Federation (LFP), said, “With Barcelona’s current financial situation, Messi cannot be recruited.” Barcelona had parted ways with Messi two years ago due to financial rules in the Primera Liga. He agreed to a new contract with Messi, but it was not approved by the Primera Liga secretariat as he exceeded the salary cap limit.
The way Barcelona can bring Messi back is to secure a salary cap to register Messi. According to reports, Barcelona has conveyed to Primera Liga a plan to reduce the salaries of the first team players and the income that can be earned when selling some players. It means that only when this is guaranteed, we will officially approach Messi.
Chairman Juan Laporta revealed that he had recently exchanged text messages with Messi, saying, “The conversation was friendly and enjoyable. We have known each other for many years and have a relationship.”
Barcelona executives have reportedly been working on a feasibility plan for a long time. The conclusion is expected to come out at a meeting between Barcelona and Primera Liga officials on the 20th. Transfer market expert reporter Fabrizio Romano said: “Barcelona will not give up their efforts to sign Messi and will continue to push for the Primera Liga secretariat to approve a financial viability plan.”
Messi recently suffered measles when a Spanish media reported that ‘Messi has agreed to a contract with Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia’. Jorge Messi, who is in charge of the agent as Messi’s father, hurriedly turned off the lights as ‘fake news’. Jorge Messi announced that “nothing will be decided until the end of Ligue 1 in France on the 4th of next month.”스포츠토토
Barcelona defeated Espanyol 4-2 on the 15th and confirmed this season’s championship after 34 rounds of the league. It was his 27th win in his career and the first splendid achievement in 4 seasons since coach Valverde in the 2018-19 season. It is also the first win since Messi left in 2021.
Immediately after winning the title, Barcelona fans chanted “Messi” and urged him to return. Vice-President Rafael Youste said: “Messi is one of many friends who are celebrating today’s Primera Liga win. I think Messi will be delighted with our title as well. I hope Messi returns to Barcelona.”
Messi has scored 15 goals and provided 15 assists in 29 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain this season.
