La Liga President Speaks on Lionel Messi's Possible Return to Barcelona


The President of the Spanish top-flight league ( La Liga) Javier Tebas has for the first time spoken on the possible return of Lionel Messi to Barcelona.

Tebas was speaking in an interview that was reported by transfer news expert, Fabrizio Romano. He said he does not see a possible way where Messi could join Barcelona because the club needs to balance its financial books.

Barça must take many financial measures to undertake Messi’s registration. They need a lot of effort to make it happen. Today I don't see his signing as feasible. But there’s a lot of time left, Barça can still make moves to get Leo. We are still awaiting a feasibility plan from Barcelona. They need a big effort to make it happen. They can sell players, for sure but they still have some players to register too.

Messi left Barcelona for PSG as a free agent during the 2021 summer transfer window due to La Liga's financial fair play rule which made it impossible to extend the Argentine's contract.
