The same was true in an interview with Catalan broadcaster ‘TV3’. President Laporta expressed his affection, saying, “I sent Messi a message a while ago. We have a long-standing friendship.

Of course, there are mountains to climb. Financial pay play (FFP) regulations and the salary cap set by the Primera Liga Secretariat must be observed. President Laporta also replied, “We have started preparing for the next season. We are doing our best to comply with FFP regulations.”
Messi tried to renew his contract with Barcelona in 2021, but had to leave for financial reasons. He has signed a 2+1 year contract with Paris Saint-Germain, which ends his basic contract this year. As relations with Paris Saint-Germain rapidly cooled in the second half of this season, an option for a one-year extension is not expected to be triggered.

Saudi Arabia, which embraces Cristiano Ronaldo, sent a love call to Messi. He offered much more money than Ronaldo’s annual salary and even rumored an agreement, but Messi drew the line, saying, “It’s all fake news. There is no verbal agreement.”
Messi’s side officially announced, “We will not make any decisions until the end of the season.” But according to Spanish reports, Messi is aware of the Barcelona idea and has his return in mind. However, it turns out that he could decide to go to Saudi Arabia if Barcelona aren’t active.
