Lionel Messi has refused to sign a new contract with PSG and wants to leave in the summer, claims Gerard Romero.
That could potentially open up a return for him to Barcelona later this year.
However, some Barca fans are still unconvinced over the possibility of that happening. In fact, they are accusing Joan Laporta of feeding this news to Romero to get supporters’ hopes up.
Here are some of the reactions from Twitter.
Xabhi: “Let me tell you what's gonna happen. Eventually, Messi will renew with PSG. Romero will say Laporta tried everything in his capability to sign him but Messi didn't want to comeback.”
Barcastat: “Laporta feeding Romero with fake news just to blame Messi at the end of the day for not willing to come back.”
Sajal: “Romero is trying to take us for a ride looool This is so obviously a Laporta tactic.”
Kavya: “Laporta is paying Romero to make it seem like he will do anything to bring him back and get the blame of letting him go off of him. Smart.”
Messiesque: “Hate to say it but Romero is Laporta's mouthpiece & Laporta is trying to show everyone he did everything he could to bring him back to save face, would love him to return but not happening sadly.”
