More and more information is emerging that Lionel Messi is returning to Barcelona even though it has been more than 18 months since he left the Camp Nou. Leo has been said to be ready to reunite with his former team this summer.
Journalist Gerard Romero revealed that Messi’s return to Barcelona is considered a difficult deal, but it is not an impossible task for the Catalan team. The president of La Liga also gave the green light for Barca to recruit Leo.
Barca is trying to balance the budget by finding new sponsors and pushing away players who are no longer in the plan.
Latest, AS confirmed Barca is ready to sell Raphinha permanently in the summer of 2023. This is a long-standing transfer target of Arsenal. There is information that the Gunners will return to buy Raphinha after this season.
Barca signed Raphinha in a £55m deal from Leeds United last July. After struggling to make an impact at first, the Brazil international is in a more consistent form with 9 goals and 10 assists in 42 games.
With Raphinha, Arsenal’s attack will have more depth next season.
