LaLiga: Barcelona refuse to rule out Messi, Iniesta return

Lionel Messi

Barcelona president, Joan Laporta, has refused to rule out the possibility of bringing Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta back to the club.

This follows the return of Dani Alves.

The 38-year-old has signed a contract with Barca until the end of the season and was presented at Camp Nou in front of over 10,000 supporters on Wednesday.

The Brazil international, who left Barca in 2016 after eight years at the club, cannot be registered until January but is already training with his new teammates.

“I can’t rule it out,” Laporta said at Alves‘ presentation when asked whether Messi and Iniesta could follow the defender back to the club in the future.

“It’s happened with Dani Alves, who has seen the situation and wanted to help. We’re grateful for the financial sacrifice he’s made. He wants to help us turn things around.

“Leo and Andres are two spectacular players. I can’t predict the future. They are Barca greats and who made this club what it is and they will always be present, but they’re players with contracts with other clubs. That must be respected, but in life you never know.”
