To bolster essential elements of their future plans, Barcelona needs former star Lionel Messi to sign a contract this summer.
Lionel Messi will make a triumphant homecoming to Spain after spending two uncertain years at PSG, when he won the Ballon d’Or once and Ligue 1 hopefully twice.
While Messi joining the Catalans may not be the most lucrative move for the PSG forward, it might be a game-changer for them as they greatly increase their chances of securing unmatched sponsorship deals and strengthen their attacking strategy.
Players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Erling Haaland are a massive draw to attract sponsorship deals. Yes, Lewandowski could be included in that list, but Barcelona’s current financial state needs someone of Messi’s stature.
If the Argentine signs the deal this summer, Barcelona would be guaranteed larger-than-life sponsorship deals.
Another area Lionel Messi can help with is Barca’s front half on the pitch. While Barcelona has been a force of nature this season when it comes to defending, according to their manager they still lack scoring goals and require someone to gel the front three perfectly.
We definitely know who he’s referring to.
Due to conflicts with Laliga’s financial fair play rules, Joan Laporta had to release Messi from Barca despite telling everyone that he’ll renew the Argentiine’s contract. This infamous time in Barcelona’s history led fans to turn against the higher management.
Laporta bringing back Lionel Messi would definitely improve that relationship.
Barca supporters understand that this is going to be decade-defining summer. Either they can win the race in signing Lionel Messi or let him go to Saudi Arabia or Inter Miami in the USA.
