Argentina national team captain Lionel Messi has revealed that he intends to return to Barcelona at some stage, but only after his retirement.


What did Lionel Messi say?

Lionel Messi has seen a Camp Nou comeback touted since financial troubles in Catalonia forced him to cut ties with Barcelona as a free agent in 2021. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner completed a move to PSG at that stage, but kept talking about a comeback as his contract in France expires by the summer of 2023.

However, new terms are expected to be signed at the Parc des Princes – while there is much speculation to suggest the Argentine will go to MLS at some stage – and Lionel Messi told the Argentine sports newspaper about plans to return to Spain that when he retires , he will return to live in Barça, this is his home.


What will happen after that for Lionel Messi?

Barça have always left the door open for Lionel to re-enter their ranks, with club president Laporta saying on a regular basis that he would like the Argentine to return – while Lionel Messi’s former team-mate Xavi now occupies a managerial hot seat at Camp Nou.

As Argentine forward Lionel Messi seemingly ruled out any possibility of returning to Barcelona in a playing capacity, his record for Blaugran should apparently remain at 672 goals through 778 appearances – with 10 La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues collected in during these presentations.


Former England captain Beckham has chosen Lionel Messi, over his Red Devils legend No. 7 Ronaldo, as the player he most enjoys watching.


How was everything?

David Beckham, who is now co-owner of MLS side Inter Miami, handed over his iconic Old Trafford jersey to Cristiano Ronaldo in 2003 when he made the move to Real Madrid. David has always spoken fondly of Cristiano, but it’s seven-time Ballon d’Or winner – and now World Cup winner – Lionel Messi who gives the ex-Manchester United winger the most pleasure in catching him in action.


Beckham loves and adores Lionel Messi

The Englishman said, when asked which player he admires the most, that it should be Lionel. According to David Beckhamm, he loves Lionel Messi for various reasons. Beckhamm loves him because he is a great father. He loves him because he is a great personality, a character.

According to him, Messi is a great person. But David thinks everyone loves him the way he plays the game. He says that Messi plays the game with passion.
