Goal revealed La Liga President Javier Tebas is waiting for a “possible plan” that allows Messi to return to Spain to play football.
To do so, the Catalan club prepares converted the former headquarters of the famous youth academy La Masia, located next to Camp Nou, into a museum dedicated to the Argentine superstar.
The Camp Nou team started holding talks with the telecommunications company Telefonica to turn the plan into reality. In principle, the idea will attract tourists and fans, thereby creating a stable income for Barca to pay for the signing of the PSG star.
If the option is feasible, the head of La Liga can approve Leo’s transfer. In fact, Messi brings clear benefits to La Liga with huge commercial revenue, especially television rights. Therefore, President Tebas creates conditions for Barca to reunite “El Pulga” in the summer of 2023.
At this time, PSG is not in a hurry to negotiate an extension and sign a new contract with Messi. Instead, they are willing to let the 2022 World Cup champion leave on free form.
President Nasser Al-Khelaifi is committed to developing PSG into a sustainable club, focusing on French talent in order to be less dependent on big-name stars. This move opens the door for Barcelona to recruit Leo. The Camp Nou team is ready and gives “El Pulga” a two-year contract.
However, Leo will only receive a salary of about 25 million euros per season before tax. This compensation is only 25% of his old income before leaving Camp Nou to join PSG in the summer of 2021.
Notably, there is a clause that allows the 2022 World Cup champion to unilaterally terminate the contract after the first season. Leo wants to return to “Blaugrana” before ending his illustrious career in Europe. Then he will consider offers from MLS or Saudi Arabia.
