For the FC Barcelona, the return of Leo Messi was an utopia does some weeks, but the things have changed after consummating a new European failure of Paris Saint-Germain. The enésimo fiasco of the sportive project Parisian under the administration of the emirate qatarí do to doubt to the player of 35 years on his continuity, still when the offer of renewal of the club is fantastic in the economic.

In the meantime, the Barça expects his moment and bet by the road mediática. The 'mimos' of Ronald Araújo and Sergi Roberto to the rosarino, opening the door to his return, form part of a strategy that also exhausts the contact with Jorge Messi, father and representative of the forward. In the last days, Jorge has happened long in the city condal and, although there has not been some 'summit' with the managerial culé, if it would exist some exchange of messages to try approach postures.

Messi has it clear: it Has to be still in Europe

For now, further of the offer of the PSG or a possible return to Barcelona, the priority for Leo is to keep in the elite of the European football. A lot it has especulado with the Arab interest to carry him to the Saudi league. Also of the insistence of David Beckham to joint him with Sergio Busquets in the Inter of Miami. But Messi does not think to go down the level of requirement, since of the contrary will be less feasible to follow to tope for the next Glass America of 2024.

Further to having won the World-wide, the '10' wants to follow playing with Argentina until where the physicist give him. And playing in Europe, this will be more feasible, since for the moment the injuries follow him respecting and, at least in the statistical, his season with Paris has been much better that the previous. Leo adds 18 goals and 17 assistances in 32 parties with the ones of Christophe Galtier. Only Kylian Mbappé improves his performance.

The insistence of the PSG and the options of the Barça

In accordance with the journalist Fabrizio Romano, for the PSG is fundamental to renew to Messi, as much as was it 'tie up to Mbappé the past summer. Neymar Aims to be the 'descarte' for the next season, but lose to the captain 'albiceleste' is not in the plans of a Nasser To the-Khelaïfi the one who has promised radical changes in the staff the next market to improve the staff in all his lines.

"I read already it received a proposal of the PSG to extend his agreement, but wants to understand how goes to be the project of Paris before taking his decision, after a verbal pact in December", cleared Roman. To the-Khelaïfi and Jorge Messi already had pactado his continuity after the World-wide, but the Parisian crisis in the last weeks and the deterioration of the relation of the forward with the fans can throw throw all to the fret of here at the end of the season.

By his part, the Barça knows that, to these heights, his options to recover to the 'Flea' are minimum, but there are them. Messi would have to accept an agreement to the drop, by much less of the half of what wins at present in France so that his index card fit in the margin salarial culé. To his time, the managerial has to adjust the staff to what demands him LaLiga to be able to fichar. The panorama is complex, but Joan Laporta keeps the optimism of face to the summer. At the end, the decision will be in hands of Leo.
