It’s expected Messi will return to Barcelona, the club he’s been contracted to since he was a pimply-faced teenager, but until the ink is dry on the contract Barcelona supporters will retain a degree of fear. An agreement between himself and the club is said to be closed, however; Joan Laporta just needs to create the financial space that will allow him to finalise it.
Messi and Neymar, of course former Barcelona teammates until the latter left for PSG in the summer of 2017, met each other earlier this summer in the final of the Copa America. Messi’s Argentina came out on top in that occasion, with the Rosarino earning himself the accolade of player of the tournament as well as leading his country to their first major title since 1993.
