“At a football level it could help us a lot”
BARCELONA, 30 May. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The coach of FC Barcelona, Xavi Hernández, pointed out that “the conditions exist” for a possible return of Leo Messi, currently at PSG and whose contract ends at the end of the season, to Barça both at a sporting and economic level, and believes that It depends on 99 percent of the Argentine that this can be a reality.
“In the end, Messi absolutely has the upper hand. If he wants to come to Barça, we’ll do everything to make him come to Barça. And I think the conditions are right”, he assured in an interview with ‘Gol a Gol’ from TV3 this Tuesday.
Xavi assured that at a football level, Messi would fit in with his Barça. “With what is convenient for me, which is at the football level, I think it could help us a lot. That Leo would also help us, in some way, financially to recover this situation that we currently have as a club”, he valued.
“Practically in the last 20 games at the Camp Nou ‘Leo, Leo’ or ‘Messi, Messi’ have been sung in the 10th minute. I think there is this illusion, but it depends absolutely, I would say 99 percent, on Leo Messi “said the Blaugrana coach.
For now, Leo Messi ends his contract at Paris Saint-Germain on June 30 and continues without renewing, so he would be free to choose his future. FC Barcelona would be interested, but the Argentine would have more succulent offers from Saudi Arabia.
