Brunati’s sources claim that Lionel Messi will become a Barcelona player next summer on a free transfer. That was the time when “El Pulga” expired his contract with PSG. Leo has made peace with Barca president Joan Laporta and is ready to return, playing for the Catalan club again.


Brunati is one of the most trusted journalists in Argentina. Brunati also has a close relationship with Messi’s team. ESPN , BBC also re-posted Brunati’s information, showing a high possibility that Messi will sign a contract with Barca in July 2023.


Mundo Deportivo revealed that the Camp Nou team is serious about reuniting Messi in the summer of 2023. Coach Xavi Hernandez is also interested in the prospect of Messi returning to Barca in the future. Leaders of the team also many times publicly announced their intention to bring Messi back. The Camp Nou team also has a plan for Leo to be the club’s ambassador after this striker retires.


Messi had a deep conflict with President Laporta before leaving Barca. But it was Laporta and the Barca leader who later expressed his desire to bring Messi back to Camp Nou many times.

In the summer of 2021, Messi left Barca in the context of the Catalan giant’s financial crisis. Last time, the Camp Nou team implemented economic levers to improve the situation. Goal believes that if Messi returns, Barca can manage to pay the Argentine superstar.


The current contract of the Paris capital team with Messi will expire on June 30, 2023. The PSG leadership appreciates Messi’s ability and wants to extend the contract with the player for as long as possible. PSG sports adviser Luis Campos insists he wants to continue working with Messi during his tenure at PSG: “I told Leo that I hope he will stay at the club for three more years.”


However, the Argentine star has not said anything about the future to be able to focus on the 2022 World Cup. Some rumors about Messi’s return to Barca have since emerged. Barcelona vice president, Mr. Eduard Romeu, recently confirmed: “Financially, that (Messi return to Barca – PV) can happen because he is about to become a free agent. But the decision was made. In the end, it’s up to the coaching staff and the players. I don’t have the right to decide but I can say that Messi’s return is possible.”


In the 2022/23 season, Messi is showing impressive performance. In the PSG shirt, he scored 7 goals and had 7 assists, making a great contribution to helping PSG lead Ligue 1 with 25 points after 9 matches.
