Leo Messi has been in Barcelona since the afternoon of this past Sunday. The Argentine, who shined in Paris Saint-triumph Germain’s over Clermont on Saturday night, landed in Barcelona for the first time since rumors of a possible return to the Catalan club.
Xavi Hernandez and Joan Laporta are adamant about Leo Messi’s return to Barcelona. In recent days, rumors regarding the president’s likely return to the Catalan side have grown, with words from the president adding fuel to the fire.
And what has just transpired is his return to the city. The Argentine arrived on Catalan soil on Sunday, just a few hours after starring with Neymar in Paris Saint-5-0 Germain’s win over Clermont.
Messi scored two and assisted on another of his team’s five goals at the Gabriel Montpied Stadium, but his overhead kick in the 86th minute was the most impressive of his goals.
After a stellar start to the Ligue 1 season, PSG coach Galtier offered the team a few days off, and Messi seized the opportunity to return to his hometown. Therefore, he arrived in Barcelona for the first time since rumors began to circulate, and Laporta stated that the club “morally owes” him a return.
