Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward Lionel Messi will reportedly not rejoin his childhood club FC Barcelona as long as the Spanish veteran defender Gerard Pique is at the club as per El Nacional.

Lionel Messi left Barcelona last summer after playing for 17 seasons to achieve his legendary status in the sport. He was indeed one of the best players to ever play for the Catalan giants. During his time at the club, Messi scored a stunning record of 672 goals in 778 appearances and led them to several titles. He is deemed by many to be the greatest footballer of all time.

However, Messi has not hit the ground running at PSG and has scored just seven goals and created 11 assists in 23 games in all competitions so far. He has only scored two goals in 16 Ligue 1 games, a disastrous return for a player of his potential and caliber.

Rumors have started to emerge of him potentially returning to the Catalan giants. According to many local media outlets, Messi is said to be frustrated with the French media’s portrayal of him. He thinks he does not deserve the criticism considering his contribution to the team.

The Argentine forward Lionel Messi has traveled to Spain many times ever since his transfer to the French capital. There is no doubt the superstar misses the stress of Barcelona as well as the Nou Camp.

However, a potential Messi return to his former club will now rest on the fact of Pique not being at the Barcelona. Lionel Messi is triggered by the veteran defender’s actions which seem to have led to his departure.

The Argentinian legend learned that Pique had told Barcelona president Joan Laporta that with Messi’s departure, the club’s finances would improve. The Argentine is said to be annoyed with the Spaniard telling Laporta such a thing given the two have known each other since the age of 13 and were very close with each other.

Evidence of Messi’s resentment of Pique took center stage during the Argentinian’s wife Antonella Roccuzzo’s birthday celebrations. His former Barca teammates Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Cesc Fabregas were all present. However, there was no sign of Pique or his wife Shakira. They have been regular attendants of such events in the past.

  1. Messi remains the best and only player Barcelona will always have and ever wish for his returns I doubt all what the media says abt him blc they know nothing of him or football well I don’t claim them as for Gerad he is a good player but same time did wrong on the issue at hand Messi deserve an apology from him what Messi did for Barcelona no player will rewrite such in Barcelona or anywhere on this planet he is the GOAT

    • Please Messi returned home back we love you are the best player in the world pique is not the owner of that club don’t listen to him the more pique hate you the more God bless you

    • Ronaldo is a lot better than Pepsi, he cannot prove himself in PSG and he already wants to go back to Barcelona because he is a loser.

  2. Messi is the best player ever barcelona can have, Just allow messi to return to his childhood team so called Barcelona. And just put that on the table and of will convince messi return at Barcelona thanks

  3. Let the legend be happy please! He will flourish with Neymar and they will make a great duo, he will prove himself at PSG after winning the UCL this season, so screw all the haters.
    If he goes back to Camp Nou he got no chemistry with other players. I am happy for him to return to Barca to retire in a few years later.

  4. Messi needs to put his emotions in check and play football. I’m a strong Messi fan as well as a Barcelona fan. Messi leaving Barca because of financial drain on the club or financial fair play was good. Whether Pique engineered it or not.
    Pique had always been a politician. Messi should concentrate on PSG and Argentina. He has done more than enough for Barca. Let him concentrate on winning UCL with PSG and World cup with Argentina. These feat will forever silence his haters.
