PSG superstar Lionel Messi has not been in contact with Barcelona since his departure: Reports

Since leaving PSG, superstar Lionel Messi has not communicated with Barcelona: According to The Athletic, Lionel Messi left Barcelona for Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in 2021 and has not been contacted by Barcelona.

After staying with Barcelona for more than two decades, Messi reluctantly left in the summer of 2021. Due to financial constraints, the La Liga club was unable to extend the Argentine star’s contract.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner signed a two-year contract with PSG after joining them on a free transfer. He appears to have settled in at the Parc des Princes after a slow start to his life in Paris.

However, ever since he left in 2021, the 35-year-old has been linked to a return to Camp Nou. The forward’s return to Barcelona has been talked about by club officials, including president Joan Laporta. Last summer, he stated:

We owe Lionel Messi a moral obligation. We would love for him to play for Barcelona at the end of his career and receive standing ovations in every stadium he visits.

“We have a dream about it. It is my goal because I feel jointly responsible for his departure, but nothing is discussed. I believe we have the ability to realize this dream.”

Laporta took a much more cautious approach when discussing the FIFA World Cup winner’s future last month, despite making such a bold claim in August. However, he has maintained that he has communicated with the player for 18 months.

However, the aforementioned source claims that Barcelona has not communicated with Messi since he left the club in 2021. Contrary to what he claims, Laporta reportedly has not spoken with the PSG superstar.

Although they appear to be aware of the obstacles that lie ahead, the Blaugrana would like to bring the Argentine back to the club. According to the report, there is little chance that he will resign in the near future.

Former Barcelona superstar Messi likely to stay at PSG

Messi, a former superstar at Barcelona, is likely to stay at PSG. The forward’s contract with the Parc des Princes team ends at the end of the season. However, he is likely to sign a new contract and commit to the club for the foreseeable future.

There have been claims that the club and the player have already reached an agreement to extend their association. The Blaugrana legend might not be returning to Catalonia as a result.
