Lionel Messi has reportedly been spotted arriving in Barcelona this weekend along with his family and ’14 suitcases’ in tow. Barcelona have made no secret of their attempts to bring the Argentina superstar back to the Nou Camp this summer.
His Paris Saint-Germain contract expires at the end of the season and the Ligue 1 giants appear to have given up on talks over a new deal. Messi broke down in tears during an emotional farewell to Barcelona back in 2021 when he left the club he joined at the age of 13 on a free transfer.
He’s set to win his second Ligue 1 title with PSG as the French side sits nine points clear at top of the table with just six games remaining. But he looks set to depart the Parc des Princes stadium this summer in a sensational return to Barcelona.
Adding to the speculation of an impending return, transfer expert Gerard Romero claims Messi has arrived in Barcelona this weekend. It’s claimed the Argentina international made his trip on a ‘private flight’ and had his family with him while he was ‘hidden in terminal one’.
