LaLiga: Lewandowski speaks on Messi’s return to Barcelona next season

Lewandowski vs Bayern

Barcelona striker, Robert Lewandowski, has said Lionel Messi’s return to the club next season would be “something amazing”.

Messi’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires this summer.

The 35-year-old is unlikely to sign a new deal.

Barca confirmed there has been contact with the Argentina captain over a potential return while ESPN sources have said he is considering a move to Saudi Arabia to join Al Hilal, the city rivals of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr.

“If he comes back to Barcelona, it will not only be for the fans but for the players something amazing because his place is here in Barcelona,” Lewandowski said on Tuesday.

“I don’t know what’s going on … I hope that next season we can play together because I know that Leo is the guy who can do [create] something from nothing and of course we need those kinds of players, for sure.”

Messi could renew his contract with PSG while a move to Major League Soccer is another possibility. He spent 20 years at Barca and helped the club win 35 trophies but left for PSG because of a financial crisis at the Catalan club in August 2021.
