In an effort to re-sign Lionel Messi, Barcelona is willing to part ways with two first-team stars

Lionel Messi’s chances of returning to Barcelona have never been higher, according to sources close to the club, and Barcelona still has hopes of luring him back. Be that as it may, the Catalan monsters should relinquish two first-cooperative individuals to re-sign their legend, as indicated by El Nacional.

Messi has received a lot of criticism for his recent subpar performances in the UEFA Champions League for Paris Saint-Germain. He is said to be unlikely to extend his contract, which runs out in June, as a result. After the Argentine icon spent two years away, Barca executives Joan Laporta and Mateu Alemany are prepared to take advantage of this opportunity to bring him back home.

Lionel Messi has already been notified that a formal proposal with a two-year agreement has been sent to him. Nonetheless, before this can occur, the Catalan monsters should decrease their pay bill and make space for Messi in their crew. Raphinha, who has failed to impress since joining Camp Nou, is likely to be the first casualty of this move.

Given that he is said to have a bad relationship with Xavi Hernandez, the Brazilian’s poor performance has cast doubt on the team hierarchy. This was made clear during a recent match in the UEFA Europa League against Manchester United when he made a bad impression on the coach.

As a result, Barcelona hopes to recoup their €60 million investment in him, making him a strong candidate for a move away from the club. Anssumane Fati is another player who could leave Camp Nou.

With the young person’s likely takeoff, the club could hope to raise huge assets and let loose the sought-after number ’10’ pullover for Lionel Messi. Notwithstanding wearing the number ’30’ during his spell with PSG, Messi’s incredible relationship with the ’10’ pullover at Barca can’t be disregarded.

Besides, reports of ill will among Messi and Fati didn’t decrease during their time together. The Argentine was envious of the youngster’s growing popularity among Barcelona fans, El Nacional claims. In addition to Fati changing his representation to Jorge Mendes, this was one of the primary causes of their relationship’s demise.

PSG will have trouble getting Lionel Messi back in the face of Barcelona’s interest:

Esteban Edul, a football journalist, has revealed that Lionel Messi’s PSG contract renewal is experiencing difficulties (via BarcaUniversal). He has been playing well for PSG, but their back-to-back losses in the UEFA Champions League Round-of-16 have severely hurt his chances of winning the coveted trophy.

Messi’s contract with Les Parisiens runs out at the end of the season, putting his future in doubt after the latest upset against Bayern Munich. Although there are a number of contradictory reports, it appears that there is a growing consensus that Messi’s time at PSG may be coming to an end, and Barcelona maintains its optimism.
