Lionel Messi's daddy calls Barcelona over possible return


The dad of Lionel Messi is understood to have actually contacted Barcelona to talk about the possibility of a return to Camp Nou in the near future.

Messi left for Paris Saint-Germain after Barcelona could not afford to renew his contract, but things have been rocky at the Parc des Princes. He was booed by his own fans during Sunday's 3-0 win over Bordeaux after he failed to lead the Parisians past Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Rumours of Mess's possible return to Barcelona have actually been swarming for a while now, however things stepped up to a new level just recently when Gerard Romero exposed that Messi's father and representative, Jorge, has actually talked with Barcelona in the last few days.

Jorge is thought to have actually told those in charge at Camp Nou that the 34-year-old is imagining a come back to the club and he has actually held a variety of phone meetings to talk about the possibility. There has been no mention of Barcelona's reaction however more news is expected in the coming days.

The belief is that Messi and his family have struggled to settle in France and would be eager to go back to Catalonia if the chance arrived, but Sport have previously noted that the Blaugrana authorities are not interested.

While they clearly have big respect for Messi and have no bitterness towards him for leaving, the sensation is that Barcelona are eager to return to a youth-oriented setup and do not want to spend for a 34-year-old Messi who appears to be in physical decline.

The creativity has actually still been there for Messi, who leads Ligue 1 with 11 assists in 18 games, but his return of simply 2 goals has fallen well below expectations.
