Bye Mbappe and bye Neymar, Lionel Messi’s final decision to leave PSG
Barcelona beat Espanyol 4-2 at the RCDE Stadium in Cornellá and became champion of the Spanish La Liga four days early. The blaugrana managed to overcome a spectacular start by Real Madrid and irrefutably won the championship. This present from the club becomes unbeatable for the return of Lionel Messi, and the captain of the Argentine team would have already decided on his future.
Despite million-dollar offers from Inter Miami and, to a greater extent, from Al-Hilal from Saudi Arabia, Lionel made the final decision to wear the FC Barcelona shirt again starting next season. In this way, he would not follow in the footsteps of Cristian Ronaldo and reject the possibility of becoming the highest-paid footballer in the history of the sport.
Although Barça is involved in a delicate economic situation, the man from Rosario will have no problem reducing his salary so that the Catalan team can comply with the Financial Fair Play. However, this does not depend solely on Leo’s will, since in order to achieve the return of his greatest idol, the club must generate 100 million euros in player sales.
Messi and the mission of returning to compete in the Champions League with Barcelona
Since the top winner of the Ballon d’Or (7) went to PSG, Barça failed to gain a foothold in the Champions League and was eliminated in the group stage in two consecutive years, something that had never happened with Lionel Messi in the squad. If he returns, the culés fans will place their trust in the Argentine to go back to play knockout phases.
