Lionel Messi has been rumored to be edging closer to a return to Barcelona this summer, and a revelation has came out today from a French reporter that the player will now definitely return to Spain.
Barcelona have never made it a secret how much they want Messi to come back, and the club have been working behind the scenes to try and make the deal possible.
Messi is not expected to commit his future to PSG in the summer, and a move to Barcelona is now increasingly likely.
According to French reporter Sabri, Lionel Messi will return to Barcelona this summer and leave PSG.
Messi has been linked to Barcelona for some weeks now and Xavi has made it very clear the door is open for a Messi return.
The World Cup winner never wanted to leave in the first place, and the chance to return has always been something that interested him.

Barcelona will need to sell some players and clear up some money financially to make it happen, as La Liga have made clear the club need to raise £178million in cash to be able to sign a player in the summer.
The feeling in Paris is that Messi has played his last season at PSG, and there is very little hope that he will change his mind and sign a new contract before the summer.
An interesting revelation, and a big chance that Messi will become a Barcelona player very soon.
