Will Messi return to Barcelona?

Messi's reported fairy tale return to Barcelona will not materialise after his PSG contract expires, according to claims by Argentine journalist, Gaston Edu.

The veteran's current deal with the Parisians ends next summer but he is yet to agree to an extension of his time in the French capital.

Meanwhile, multiple reports have hinted at Messi favouring a Camp Nou return instead of continuing in Ligue 1, per reports by SB Nation.

Messi leads Ballon d'Or rankings

Sports Brief earlier reported on Messi being tipped as favourite to win the 2023 Ballon d’Or award, going by the latest power rankings released for January.

The 35-year-old forward has been in sublime form for PSG as well, having scored 13 goals and provided 14 assists in 21 appearances across all competitions.

The seven-time award winner is ranked ahead of teammates, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Junior in second and fifth respectively, Sportskeeda reports.
