Iniesta tips Lionel Messi to return to FC Barcelona

Andreas Iniesta has backed Lionel Messi to return to FC Barcelona.


Messi joined PSG in the summer of 2021 from long-time club, Barcelona.

The Argentine went on to have a solid season, scoring 11 goals and providing 15 assists in 34 outings.

Such a record for the majority of players, especially at 34, would be very good. However, there were some that argued that Messi was not at his best.

In 2022/23, however, at the age of 35, Messi has hit the ground running. In 16 games for PSG, he has already scored 11 and assisted 12.

Proving he can still go at the age of 35, Barcelona fans would no doubt love to see Messi return to the Camp Nou at some point in the near future.

Messi is in the final year of his PSG contract, with the option of an extra year.

So, the South American can leave PSG for free next summer and re-sign for Barcelona if he wished.

And now, former teammate of Messi, Andreas Iniesta, has bacedk the infamous no.10 to return to Barcelona:

“The Messi of before and the one of now is different from all. He is number one. The only thing he has done is grow, improve himself, and make his teammates better,” he said.

A team with Messi has a very important point to achieve victories and titles. I haven’t seen anyone do the things he does. “Going back to Barcelona is never easy, but Leo can come back, it’s still a possibility.”
