The season is coming to an end, the summer transfer period is approaching and with it the end of contracts. Lionel Messi will most likely become a free agent as well. Will the best footballer in history return to Barcelona?

Barcelona have reached the league title and practically only one point or a loss to Lens separates PSG from winning the trophy for the French champion. The link between the two teams is, of course, the legendary Lionel Messi.

The Argentine will win his second league title in two seasons in France. To do more with the Parisian side, he was unfortunately not destined to do so. It must be added that also because of the club’s unconceptual transfer policy.

He came to PSG from Barcelona. And in the summer, he may well go in the opposite direction. But nothing is certain. The renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano still assures that the world champion and winner of seven Ballons d’Or will decide his future after the season.

For the time being, there are rumours about the astronomical offer Messi has received from Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal and, of course, Barcelona’s interest. On the day the Catalans won the title, the streets of Barcelona were chanting Messi’s name.

Moreover, the club president himself declared that he would do everything he could to get the club legend back to where he belongs. That is, to the Camp Nou.

Now coach Xavi Hernández, who spent several years with Messi in the Blaugranas starting line-up, has also spoken about the transfer. “It’s up in the air, it depends on a lot of things,” he is quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

“He’s an amazing player, we’re friends. We’ll see if it happens. A lot will depend on what Leo’s intentions are,” Xavi added.

It is worth noting that in the club jersey alone this season Messi has racked up 20 goals and 20 assists across all competitions. It took him 39 games to do it. At 35 years old, a phenomenal record. He is the only player in the top five leagues to have 20 goals and assists.
