Barcelona President Joan Laporta admits the return of striker Lionel Messi and midfielder Andrés Iniesta to the club.
The functionary was asked about the potential transition of the two Blaugranas legends at the presentation of Dani Alves, who returned to Barcelona after five years of absence. He said that he couldn’t rule it out. He compared the situation with Dani Alves, as the Brazilian saw the situation in the team and wanted to help. Laporta also said many thanks for the financial sacrifices Alves made during the return.
Also, the official admitted that both Leo and Andres were outstanding players. Joan said that they both led Barcelona to the historical winnings, but now they are the players with contracts in other clubs. However, he didn’t exclude the potential return of the legends.
In addition to Alves, Barcelona returned Xavi Hernandez but as a head coach. Such huge attention to the former legends forces all to think about Messi and Iniesta. To remind, the Argentinian was forced to leave the club this summer due to financial problems Barcelona faced. Iniesta left Catalonia in the summer of 2018 and moved to Japan.
