"Very Complicated" - La Liga boss Javier Tebas rates Messi's chances to return to Barcelona
Javier Tebas, the president of La Liga, has stated that it will be a challenging task for Lionel Messi to make a comeback and play for Barcelona in the upcoming season.
As his contract is set to expire at the end of the season, Paris Saint-Germain is optimistic about retaining Lionel Messi's services, but there is still a possibility of him returning to his beloved home, Camp Nou, as Barcelona is not ruling out the option.
According to Fabrizio Romano, a well-known football journalist, Tebas has given an update on the situation, acknowledging that it would be a complex matter.
The head of La Liga clarified that Barcelona would need to sell players and reduce their salaries to register the World Cup champion, depending on the amount of Messi's salary.
There are some fans who speculate that Tebas is purposely placing more obstacles in Barcelona's way due to his dislike towards the club.
Barca Blaugranes reported that Tebas expressed his optimism about Barcelona re-signing Messi and shared his desire to have the Argentine player back in La Liga.
“Hopefully, for La Liga, Barça will make the necessary moves for Messi to come, but we will not change a rule for Messi to return. I would like Messi to play in this competition,” he said at the time.
