Laporta states Messi and Iniesta could return to Barcelona

Barcelona president Joan Laporta claims that at some point in the future Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi could potentially return to Camp Nou. Xavi was just named the Catalan club’s new head coach, and the Spaniard has returned to Camp Nou on a free transfer with seasoned defender Dani Alves.

Iniesta has recently expressed interest in returning to the Spanish football club. He is still playing for Vissel Kobe in Japan, and Laporta has stated that both the 37-year-old and Messi might return. At Alves’s presentation on Wednesday Laporta said, “I do not rule it out (Messi, Iniesta returning). It has happened with Dani. And I want to thank him because he has seen the situation of the club and wants to come to help.”

“I also thank him for making an economic effort. We are going to reverse this situation, but now he has made this effort. It has to be appreciated. These are people who have made this club great. Messi and Iniesta are spectacular, I cannot predict the future, as they are still playing, but they have made the club great, we always keep them in mind, although now they have contracts with other clubs and you have to respect that, but in life, you never know.”

Over the summer Messi was determined to sign a new contract with Barcelona, but the club’s financial problems meant that he had to leave, with the Argentine heading to Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.
