Messi currently has a year left on his contract with PSG but beyond that his future is uncertain, so the door for a return to Barcelona has been opened.

“I don’t believe that Messi’s chapter at Barcelona is over,” Laporta told ESPN. And I believe it’s our responsibility to make sure that chapter stays open. To have a bit of time to do that, it should have been how he could have had a much more glorious ending than he already had. I feel like I owe him. Ethically, as president of Barcelona, I think I did what needed to be done. But as president of Barcelona, and personally, I believe I owe him one thing.”
Messi’s form has declined since joining PSG
Although Messi contributed only 6 goals last season, PSG want Messi to agree to a one-year contract extension. There is still no official offer as Messi is said to want to wait until after the 2022 World Cup to make a decision.
