While the Inter of Miami follows dreaming with fichar to Leo Messi, Jorge, his father and representative, took advantage of the presence of the player in the City Condal to gather with Joan Laporta. The 'summit' would have had like main aim there would be limar asperezas after the infortunadas statements of Matías (greater brother of the '10'), in addition to the future of the still player of Paris Saint-Germain, whose agreement finalises the next 30 June.

The meeting was confirmed by the program 'Tot Coast' of 'Catalonia Ràdio' and produced taking advantage of the presence of the family Messi in Barcelona. In fact, Leo dined the Monday with his friends Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, while his father and the mandator culé agreed a 'summit' to converse, between other things, on the homage that the Barça is due to Messi from does a pair of years, since his exit produced in the middle of the derivative sanitary restrictions of the pandemia of the COVID-19.

To his time, Jorge Messi and Laporta would have touched a key subject: the possible return of Lionel to the club. The player of 35 years could arrive to 'cost zero', as it left in the summer of 2021, but his wage will not be easy to negotiate for a Barça in serious problems to adjust to the 'fair play' financial of LaLiga. In fact, the directive knows that it has to go down the mass salarial in 200 million euros, by which fit a high wage, to these heights, is impossible.

Leo ingresa around 40 'kilos' net to the year with the PSG, a wage that will be readjusted from the month of July if it accepts to renew. Of the same way, the 'crack' rosarino could sign an agreement multimillionaire with the Inter of Miami or some Arab club, by which, to dress again the T-shirt culé, inevitably would have to resignarse to lose a lot of money. However, neither the Barça neither the family Messi have closed of the all the door to this possibility.

The first step is given

Further of cuán complicated luzca this possibility, the true is that the meeting between the father of Leo and Laporta represents a big advance for reestablecer the cordialidad between the family Messi and the group blaugrana. Leo left of unexpected and regrettable form, but Barcelona never has left to be his house. The days of rest by Carnival have been the perfect excuse to gather with the captains of the Barça, something usual from the course of the forward to the PSG.

For Leo, the option to renew with the Paris keeps on being prioritaria in the economic and in the sportive, but of here to July a lot of things can suceder. Nasser To the-Khelaïfi does not want to give longer to the negotiations, but Leo insists in taking the things calmly and expect, at least, until the final stretch of the season to define his future, once Paris have clearer his aims for the 2023/24.

With the mission to keep in active with Argentina, at least, until the Glass America of 2024, be still in the European elite seems indisputable for the 'Flea', by which the options of an exotic destination this year lucen like unlikely. Will have option the Barça? Yes, until the Argentinian captain or his father say the contrary. For the moment, the possibilities follow so intact like far.
