Coach Pep Guardiola believes that Lionel Messi’s return to Barcelona is the best scenario for both sides.
Sharing on ESPN, the Spaniard said: “I hope one day we can see Messi honored when he retires in Barcelona. The achievements the team has achieved in the past 10-12 years will I know that President Joan Laporta is trying to do this (bring Messi back – PV).At that time, Messi’s family will feel the love from the fans. “.
“Messi has to leave Barca because of the difficult economic situation of the team and other issues that I do not want to delve into. There are things only insiders can understand,” said the Spaniard.
A few days ago, Telegraph reported that Jorge, the father of Messi, informed PSG that M10 would leave Parc des Princes at the end of the season. Paris capital club also no longer interested to keep “El Pulga”.
Messi has continuously received criticism from PSG fans after nearly two years of playing in Paris. The reason comes from the fact that the 2022 World Cup champion cannot help PSG compete for the Champions League title.
In the case of leaving PSG, Messi may consider joining Pep’s Man City. The two used to work together very successfully at Barca and have a close relationship. Man City’s current leadership team has many former Barca members.
Besides, in contrast to Barca who are having financial difficulties, Man City has great support from the pockets of UAE owners. Spending about 30-40 million euros a year salary on Messi certainly cannot be a problem for the green half of Manchester.
In addition to PSG and Barca, Al Hilal in the Saudi Pro League also wants to recruit Messi. This club is said to be willing to spend a salary of 400 million euros per year to convince M10 to play.
Messi has just returned to training after receiving an internal punishment. It is expected that the former Barca star can play in the confrontation with Auxerre on May 22 in the 36th round of Ligue 1. However, coach Christophe Galtier will have a talk with Messi to decide whether M10 will play or not. .
