Mercato: La Liga approves Barca plan for Messi, player’s father confirms interest


According to most reports from the Spanish sports press, La Liga have approved Barca’s plan to repatriate Lionel Messi. A meeting between Barcelona president Joan Laporta and Jorge Messi, the player’s agent and father, took place on Monday.

The future of Lionel Messi finally seems to be clear. At the end of the contract with PSG, the Argentinian will officially leave the capital club. However, no one knows the player’s next destination, while rumors around MLS, Saudi Arabia and Barça are rife. But the last option appears here as the most probable.

According to recent echoes from the Catalan press, La Liga has finally approved the plan presented by the Barcelona club regarding the recruitment of the sevenfold Golden Ball. As a reminder, Barça’s finances are at their worst and the rules of financial fair play in the Spanish league are very strict. The club will still have to degrease to consider his arrival.

As soon as the plan was approved, Joan Laporta, the president of Barça, made an appointment with Jorge Messi, the player’s father and agent. The two were spotted together on Monday afternoon. As soon as the representative of Lionel Messi left the building, the journalists hastened to question him on the result of this meeting. The latter, without jargon, confirmed the interests of both parties: “ He wants to return to Barça and I would like him to come back. It is an option. Am I confident that he can come back? Yes « .

However, nothing is yet decided in this file and no one is better concerned than the direct representative of the Catalan club. Joan Laporta, invaded by questions from supporters, got a little carried away. The Barcelona president even grabbed the phone of one of the fans, who allegedly asked him if Lionel Messi was going to return to Barcelona.

Once he had calmed down, the Spanish leader replied that he was “difficult to get him to come” even though he « would like » see him back. « Those who do what they can are not obliged to do more », he then added. The Catalan press clarified that a decision should be taken quickly so that the club can project itself on its project now.
