The tense reception coincides with a scathing statement from one of PSG’s main organized supporters. For the first time, the Colectivo Ultras París (CUP) demanded on Saturday the departure of the club’s current management, led by Qatari Nasser Al-Khelaifi, due to the need for “people who serve the club and do not take advantage of it”.
Since 2011, Al-Khelaifi has invested some 1,400 million euros in signings and hired several of the world figures – the last of them, Messi -, without having yet reached the Champions League.
the sports journalist Gerard Romero, on his Twitch channel, said that Jorge, Messi’s father, contacted the leaders of Barcelona and that there was talk of a possible negotiation for the Argentine to return to the club.
The news, as expected, caused a sensation and several important media in Spain responded, although neither party confirmed the information.

It is assured that the idea is for Messi to return alongside Xavi, who he knows very well, because they played together in the glory days of the Spanish club. Reportedly, the Argentine could return to Spain to retire from football there, although it’s unclear under what conditions.
Meanwhile, Messi is still in Paris training with PSG, while social networks are exploding. It’s clear that the Argentinian’s possible return to Barcelona is viewed favorably but the matter is still unclear as no one has spoken about it.
