Lionel Messi's father fuels speculation of a potential return to Barcelona for his son
Lionel Messi's father has expressed his desire for his son to return to Barcelona at some point in the future.
Remember that the Argentine legend made a surprise move to PSG last August but is yet to find his best form?
After being asked about the possibility of his kid playing for Barcelona before the end of his career, he told Twitch channel Jijantes FC, "I hope it [happens] someday."
Messi scored 672 goals in 777 appearances for Barcelona, and his father, Jorge, is confident that his son will return to the Nou Camp in the future.
Jorge is not the first person to speak out about their desire to see Messi move back to the club he joined as a teenager.
Messi's former team-mate Dani Alves called for the playmaker to'return home' to Barcelona last month.
However, it has been reported that PSG plan to keep the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner at the club for another year and build the team around him.
Messi has scored just six Ligue 1 goals this season, but his form has picked up of late as he netted a brace against Montpellier on Saturday. He has also registered 13 assists in France's top flight across the course of the campaign.
