The actuality of the FC Barcelona is marked by the rumours on the possible return of Lionel Messi to the team in the market of signings estival. The footballer of 35 years finishes his agreement with the Paris Saint-Germain and, up to now, there are not novelties on a possible renewal. The conversations would be in 'stand by', whereas from the Barcelona club have begun a 'campaign' so that, two years after his exit, 'The Flea' go back to the Spotify Camp Nou.

Rafa Yuste, Mateu Alemany, Xavi Hernández and Joan Laporta have been the voices authorised that, in the last months, have spoken on the possibility that Messi return. Although they have showed absolute respect to a player that has valid agreement with a club, in this case the PSG, have left the open doors so that have a last dance in the team in which it turned into the best footballer of the world. The position of the Barcelona is very clear, but this does not mean that the return was safe.

What thinks the changing room of the FC Barcelona on Messi?

They have been varied the players that have 'wetted' on the 'case Messi' and have expressed that, if it depends on they, would be expecting him. In fact, one of the captains, Sergi Roberto, announced after the last Classical of LaLiga that "who does not go to be prepared for the turn of Leo…, with the open arms. Here we go it to treat very well", message that had backed before footballers like Robert Lewandowski, Ronald Araújo, Marc-André ter Stegen or Pedri González.

In the changing room are fully conscious that the current attacker of the PSG would give a jump of quality to the current staff and that, with him, would be much easier to litigate by the titles. Messi continues being a player very determinant, although lately in Paris was not showing his more decisive version and was duramente 'punished' by the fans. All in the Barça coincide in that, deportivamente, is a himself or yes for this summer... But this does that they see it viable?

In 'Relief' have opened a new window on what think the players of the Barcelona picture further of the sportive impact that it could have Messi if it returns this summer. Because, as it comes informing recently (and with a lot of insistence), is an operation that brushes the complicated by the economic factor and the interminable difficulties of the club with the 'fair play' financial that, for example, has deprived to the Barcelona directors to inscribe to the players that have renewed recently his agreements: Gavi, Ronald Araújo, Marcos Alonso and Sergi Roberto. All are in list of wait for, when the club free his mass salarial (in 200 million euros, at least) are registered in LaLiga.

A thing is the sportive, another the reality...

In the changing room culé, as it explains the before quoted source, there is some scepticism regarding the economic situation and bet for keeping to the margin. There is those who understand that it is "unrealistic" to think in the turn of Messi and, besides, that sound the names Gündogan, Foyth or Vitor Roque to reinforce the staff in the next season. The club, entirely exceeded in his 'fair play' financial, has too many priorities before thinking in reinforcements (free or no). And this understand it the players.

This does not remove that it exist the wish that it return for his last dance, as Michael Jordan in the Chicago Bulls. Youngsters and veterans consider that it would be a movement that would benefit enormously to the team of face to the next course, but is necessary that the club no of steps in false and that, before, solutions all the pending problems. The players, especially the captains, are in constant communication with Messi... And have the hope that, when they find the formula, can finish his career home.
