Barcelona has in recent times found joy and exuberance as well as success on the field. After having just recently beaten arch-rivals Real Madrid 1-0 at the Spotify Camp Nou and extending their lead in the league to 12 points, the Catalans may just be in for some even more good news.

Lionel Messi, the current player for Parisian club PSG, is reportedly open to the idea of returning to his former club with whom he has achieved unfathomable heights. FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi have always been inseparable, from the eyes and perspectives of Cules and non-Barcelona fans alike.

Now, after almost 2 seasons apart from one another, there may just be an extra twist to their fairy tale of club and player. According to trusted journalist Gerard Romero, Messi does not intend to renew his contract with PSG and he wants to return to Barcelona.

The journalist offers this news with great optimism as well as backing. Not the only one to report such details, other journalists, Spanish and French alike, have also reported that the Argentine does not intend on renewing with PSG but still wants to stay in Europe.

In terms of other recent reports, Roger Torello reports that Barcelona are looking for solutions to allow the return of Messi and present him with a realistic offer. Joan Laporta dreams of his return and Xavi thinks he will fit in perfectly with the team as he is a natural leader.

The former Barcelona captain has not been able to successfully conquer the UEFA Champions League with his current Parisian side as the owners of the club had initially hoped they would be able to with the likes of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar Jr within their ranks.

Yet as football has proved from time to time, it is not always a super team filled with stars that guarantee success, but rather a compatible system that does. Although reports are positive thus far, they also state that the financial aspect of such a proposition is still to be figured out between both parties. FC Barcelona will indefinitely need to make space within their salary limits to be able to accommodate Lionel Messi should the scenario arise.

Lionel Messi has scored 672 times for FC Barcelona and provided 303 assists within his 778 appearances for the Catalan club. A graduate of La Masia as well with a storied history, the former legendary number 10 has a tale of greatness at the club, having won 4 UEFA Champions Leagues as well as 10 La Ligas with the club along with a multitude of other achievements, both with the team and individually.

Should he return, it would be a fairytale ending to a relationship that has together dominated the world of football in an unprecedented fashion.
