According to rumours, Xavi wants Barcelona to make a renewed effort to re-sign PSG forward Lionel Messi in the summer of 2023. In order to improve Xavi’s first-team roster for the upcoming season, Joan Laporta has been working nonstop. Generally speaking, his efforts have been successful.
It was absolutive one of the biggest shocks in the World of football when Lionel Messi left Barcelona and joined the French giants Paris-Saint Germain. A situation which people only imagined would be happening in the parallel universe were made possible in this milky way galaxy.
Ramos and Messi playing together was even tough to imagine and dream about but this is what the present scenario is. One thing is certain the so-called GOAT is being missed at his home ground i.e Canp Nou.
With the addition of Andreas Christensen, Franck Kessie, Raphinha, and Robert Lewandowski to Camp Nou, the Catalan giants appear confident in their ability to defeat Chelsea in the battle for the services of Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.
However, Sport claims that when it comes to adjusting his team, Xavi is already planning ahead one year. According to the source, Xavi has already suggested that Barcelona make all attempt to try to re-sign Messi prior to 2023–24.
Will Xavi be able to bring Messi back at Cmap Nou
Barcelona found themselves in the predicament of having to split ways with their greatest player ever in 2021, despite his willingness. This happened because Barca wanted to improve their financial situation, which is yet not in a good state.
Even if that is still the case, Laporta has been selling portions of the team’s potential television income to raise much-needed transfer money. It is conceivable that Xavi, despite his advanced age, may prioritise a reunion with one of his former teammates, because Barcelona is blessed with an abundance of young players who will probably stay with the team for years to come.
If the storied Argentine returns to Catalonia at the conclusion of his two-year contract with PSG, he will have just turned 36.
Despite Messi’s 34 appearances for the French giants during the previous season, which saw him provide 11 goals and 15 assists, the season was not a resounding success.
Only six goals were scored during PSG’s Ligue 1 championship season, and the team lost to Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16.
Messi currently has less than a year left on his contract, but PSG officials are reportedly eager to extend it through the year 2024.
The World Cup is at the end of this year, and it has been previously asserted that Messi and his representatives have no intention of engaging in conversations until then.
Messi is sure to have offers on the table from the MLS as well. During his career at Barcelona, Messi tallied an astounding 670 goals and 302 assists.
