Barcelona taking cautious approach in their pursuit of re-signing Lionel Messi this summer

Lionel Messi’s possible return to Barcelona had been at the forefront of the minds of most Cules for recent months, as contract negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain remain at a standstill.

Messi, who scored for Argentina this week amid wild celebrations as La Albiceleste played their first match on home soil since winning the World Cup in December, sees his current deal at the French champions expire at the end of the season.

Barcelona are said to be very interested in seeing Messi return for a second spell at the La Liga leaders, as per MD, but they are expected to take a cautious approach in their pursuit of his signature over the next few months.

Barcelona are reportedly waiting to see how Messi’s relationship with PSG evolves as contract talks re-open in the coming weeks, and the Blaugrana are keeping a “low profile” in the meantime.

Messi’s return would be a momentous day for Barcelona, who lost their favourite son two years ago because of their financial issues, It remains to be seen whether those same problems will have an effect in a possible re-signing.
