Spanish coach Javi Hernandez, head coach of FC Barcelona, hopes that Argentine star Lionel Messi will return to the ranks of the Catalan club soon.
It is worth noting that Messi has a contract with Paris Saint-Germain that expires in the summer of 2023 and has not yet decided on his position on the extension.
There has been a tense atmosphere between the Argentine star and the Parisian club in the current period after the player traveled to Saudi Arabia without the club’s approval, raising doubts about his departure.
Reason for Xavi’s commitment to bringing Messi back to Barcelona
Several press reports have indicated that Barcelona are looking to get Lionel back into the fold next summer.
And the Spanish newspaper Sport stated that Xavi insisted on bringing the player back to give the team the right finishing touch, in addition to strengthening the team along with Pedri, especially in creating opportunities in the last third of the pitch.
The newspaper also noted the many matches ending in a one-goal victory for the Catalan club, in addition to the team’s problems following Pedri’s absence due to injury, and confirmed that this had prompted Xavi to push for Leo’s return.
The 36-year-old Argentine star is the best choice for Xavi in the upcoming summer transfers due to his outstanding qualities.
