Recently, the news that Messi wants to return to Barca has been overwhelming, and many fans are looking forward to him wearing the red and blue shirt again. This also makes Greater Paris very nervous, because they also want to keep Messi, especially now that he is in good shape, Mbappe and Neymar are incompatible, and there may be 1 person to leave in the summer window next year.
From the current point of view, the possibility of Messi staying in Greater Paris is much greater than his return to Barca. In fact, Barca still owes a lot of money to Messi, and when his contract expired and left, Barca still owed him 60 million euros in salary, and now almost 2 years later, this money has not been paid.
In addition to economic problems, what prevents Messi from returning to Barca is "interpersonal relations". In Barcelona, La Porta is one of the culprits that pushed Messi to leave, the relationship between the two people has dropped to the freezing point, last year Messi won the Golden Ballon Award, the two people did not even communicate with each other, Messi is still unhappy with the Barca executive. In addition, Pique has also been exposed as the key figure for Messi to leave Barca, and now that he is still playing for Barca, Messi is afraid that he will not be willing to be a teammate with someone with a sword in his mouth.
Although Messi's feelings for Barca are irreplaceable, as long as his relationship with La Porta and Pique is not "thawed", it will be difficult to achieve a return to Camp Nou. It is worth mentioning that, according to Searl Radio, Greater Paris has sent a 1+1 contract extension for Messi, hoping to keep the Argentine superstar. However, the "sincerity" of Greater Paris is average, because of this new contract, the annual salary is only 30 million euros. In Greater Paris, Messi's average annual salary for 2 years is 35 million euros, if the contract is renewed, he will have 5 million euros less income in 1 year, that is to say, Greater Paris hopes that Messi will cut his salary to stay, in fact, in Messi's current state, he is definitely worth a contract with a higher annual salary.
This season, Messi has fully adapted to the team, and his play has also improved qualitatively. So far this season, Messi has played 11 games in Paris and has scored six goals and delivered eight assists. After the team changed coach, Galtier established Messi's central position on the field, and now in addition to making the ball for his teammates, he can also score points at any time, which can be described as organizing and shooting on the shoulder.
According to statistics, Messi has created 24 scoring opportunities this season, in addition to his personal 39 shots, which add up to 63, which is the player with the most shots + opportunities created in the five major leagues, 15 more than Mbappe.
In Paris, Messi can be described as a broken heart, and now he is in 3 "jobs", in addition to creating opportunities for teammates to pass the ball + scoring his own shots, he also has to coax Mbappe. According to the "Team Newspaper", when the conflict between Mbappe and Neymar broke out this season, Messi and Ramos once became "middlemen", and they successfully eased the relationship between the 2 people.
Since Neymar has always been Messi is his big brother, I believe that Neymar will definitely listen to what Messi says. In contrast, Mbappe is much more arrogant, and it is clear that Messi mediated the relationship between the two people, mainly to coax Mbappe, let him think about the overall situation, put aside the mustard for the time being, and work together to impact the Champions League this season.
Now it seems that although Mbappe and Neymar are temporarily "reconciled", but the rift between these 2 people already exists, after the end of this season, one of them may leave, once Mbappe or Neymar is sent away, then Paris can not afford to lose Messi, so it is not surprising that they are in a hurry to renew their contract with Messi. However, if Greater Paris really wants to keep Messi, then they may have to raise their offers, or establish Messi's absolute status in the team, and let Messi play Mbappe on and off the field.
