Lionel Messi finally speak about a move to Barcelona next summer after a man of the match performance today.
Lionel Messi spent the majority of his life at Barcelona, so his departure from the team in 2021 was bittersweet. Not just for the supporters, who were undoubtedly devastated, but also for the Argentine, who struggled to fit in at PSG.
His first season in the French capital was, to put it mildly, underwhelming. In 26 league games, he only managed to score six goals while also providing 17 assists. Those numbers are unimpressive by his standards.
With a new coach and a healthy Neymar on his team, Messi is doing far better this year. He has made eight appearances in the league and already has four goals and seven assists.
He undoubtedly feels better, plays better, and appears to be playing better. He made a comment about his improved play after Argentina defeated Honduras 3-0.
“I feel wonderful; this year, I feel different. He was quoted as saying, “I knew it was going to be like this,” by Fabrizio Romano.
Since Xavi and Joan Laporta are interested in signing Messi as a free agent in 2023, he has been connected with a return to Barcelona for a good number of months. PSG is aiming to extend his contract at the same time.
“I feel more at ease with the squad, the locker room, my teammates, and the game. I’m starting to enjoy it again because I feel fantastic again, said Messi.
On paper, Leo’s form, along with that of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, is sufficient to win the Champions League this year.
And as improbable as it may sound, obtaining the trophy that has eluded him for the past seven years could be sufficient justification for him to remain in Paris for an extended period of time.
Despite this, Messi won’t make a decision about his future until after the World Cup, which both clubs are certain of.
