Joan Laporta says Barcelona have a ‘moral debt’ with PSG superstar Lionel Messi

Barcelona President Joan Laporta believes that the Blaugrana owe a moral debt to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) superstar Lionel Messi.

The Argentina striker left the Nou Camp last summer after his contract expired on June 30, 2021. It was an emotional farewell for Messi who had spent 18 years at the club. Messi’s exit came due to Barcelona’s poor financial situation.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner scored 627 goals in 714 games for the La Liga side. During this period, he also recorded 250 assists for the Blaugrana.

Since losing Messi, Laporta has been able to reshuffle several deals at the Nou Camp and bring in more cash thanks to new deals at the club. He has managed to keep them competitive at the highest level and has brought on several new faces this summer.

As the club look to regain financial stability under Laporta, a potential return for Messi has been touted. The President himself has claimed that such a move may be on the horizon.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Laporta have claimed that the club owe a moral debt to Messi

He said:

“I didn’t see him comment because he’s a PSG player. They asked me in a relaxed position on Latin American TV in the US. We’ll see. We have a moral debt to Leo.”

Lionel Messi could make a dramatic return to Barcelona next summer

Messi signed a free transfer for PSG last summer. He inked a two-year deal with the French giants that expires in 2023. He had a subpar season at Paris, recording 11 goals and 14 assists in 34 games for the club.

PSG made several structural changes at the club in a bid to win the Champions League this season. Messi, who last won the competition in 2015, is keen to add another European title to his trophy cabinet.

All-time most goals in major finals. Lionel Messi leads with 32 goals.

Even if his ambitions at PSG are exciting, you can always expect him to be open-minded about a return to the Nou Camp.

His former team-mate and current Barcelona manager Xavi recently spoke about the situation:

“I wish Messi’s time wasn’t over yet, I think he deserves a second chance, one last chance, but that’s next year,” said Xavi in ​​a press conference when asked about the player. He now has a contract [with PSG]but I would like that.”

It remains to be seen what Messi will decide when his contract with PSG expires next summer.
