Surprise .. Messi asks to return to Barcelona

Spanish media revealed that Argentine star Lionel Messi requested to return to Barcelona during the current transfer period.

And the Spanish “El Chiringuito” program indicated that Messi had a good relationship with Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez, after they won everything together, noting that the Paris Saint-Germain player called his former colleague and asked him about any possibility of returning to the Catalan club.

He indicated that Xavi replied to Messi that he was pleased with his request, but that he had to speak to President Juan Laporta, and that the latter would contact him, explaining that Laporta had not contacted Messi yet.

Messi moved from Barcelona to Saint-Germain last summer, via a free deal, due to the Catalan club's failure to renew his contract in accordance with the Fair Play Law.
