Lionel Messi is said to be returning to Barcelona, and the PSG star has pushed the La Liga club to recruit two of his Argentina colleagues as well.
Lionel Messi’s contract with PSG expires on June 30, allowing him to return to FC Barcelona. The 35-year-old quit his childhood club in August 2022 because the team couldn’t agree on financial terms with La Liga. According to rumours, Barcelona is once again attempting to re-sign Messi and is doing all necessary to secure his return.
According to reports, the club recently completed an internal economic research that demonstrated that Messi’s return would be extremely advantageous for all parties concerned. According to the article, his comeback would be worth 230 million Euros per year, with 150 million Euros coming from new sponsors and 80 million Euros coming from ticket sales.
In addition, while Camp Nou is being renovated, the team will play at Montjuic Stadium next season. Meanwhile, Messi’s yearly stated pay is 25 million Euros, and the study indicates that the club may generate a profit of 100 million Euros after deducting other expenditures.
EL Nacional recently reported that Messi also wants Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes to join him in Catalonia. Di Maria’s contract with Juventus will expire at the end of the season. Meanwhile, Paredes has spent the season on loan from PSG at Juventus and does not want to return to France.
