The prospect of Lionel Messi making a fairytale return to Barcelona is very much alive thanks to a reported collaboration between the Catalan club and US-based Inter Miami.

Even with the anticipated departures of senior players like Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba at the end of the season, the financial feasibility of Barcelona inking a deal with Messi remains a challenge.

This situation has reportedly caused concern for Lionel Messi's father and agent, Jorge Messi, per Gerard Romero.

But according to L'Equipe, Barca have joined forces with Inter Miami in a bid to help Messi retrace his steps to Camp Nou.

The report further explains that the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner would sign for the Florida outfit this summer before being loaned straight away to Barcelona for six or 18 months.

Messi's father sceptical about Barca return

Meanwhile, Jorge Messi, father and agent of Lionel, has revealed that no decision will be made on his son's footballing future until the end of the season, Sports Brief reported.

Spanish Journalist Gerard Romero has dropped a bombshell regarding Barcelona’s pursuit of Lionel Messi, saying that the club have made another informal offer to the player recently.

His father and agent, Jorge Messi, however, is anxious about Barça’s pursuit, as he wants to close Leo’s future as soon as possible. He is not confident about the Catalans’ financial plan and the FFP rules.

Barca coach wants Messi

In a related publication, Sports Brief reported that Barcelona head coach Xavi Hernandez believes Lionel Messi making a return to the Catalan giants makes a lot of sporting sense.

Messi swapped Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in 2021 on the back of La Blaugrana's ailing financial situation and has been linked with a potential return in the summer.
