Messi To Make Stunning Barca Return?

A shock report has suggested that Lionel Messi could make a stunning return to Barcelona after the Catalan club brought Xavi Hernandez back as manager.

Xavi Makes Big Messi Statement

The 34-year-old left the Blaugrana in August following 17 history-changing seasons in the first team, during which he scored 672 goals across all competitions.

His time at Barcelona was cut short due to the club's inability to afford his terms in contract talks, although it is widely believed the six-time Ballon d'Or winner's intention was to stay at his boyhood side.

Messi subsequently joined French giants Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent, where he has made just eight appearances across platforms since his arrival three months ago.

Below are 7 players Xavi could 'get rid' of after returning to Barca: 

In a recent interview, the Argentine revealed he would love to return to the Spanish giants in a technical role, but Marca has now suggested that it could be a possibility that he will play for the club again before hanging up his boots.  

It is claimed that "calls are gathering behind the scenes" for the LaLiga side to work on ways to bring Messi back to Barca after the 2022/23 season. The forward signed a two-year contract in the French capital with the option of extending his stay for a further year.

Xavi, Messi's former colleague, returned to the Catalans this week to succeed Ronald Koeman as manager on a contract that will run until 2023. 

Here are some images from Xavi's unveiling as Barca boss:
