FC Barcelona vice president Rafa Yuste has confirmed that the club has approached Lionel Messi about a possible summer return.


In 2021, the Argentine superstar famously left Barcelona in tears. He then signed a two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent, which expires on June 30.


The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner’s contract at Parc des Princes included an option for an additional year, which Messi has so far declined.


According to Mundo Deportivo, PSG is willing to offer Messi “more money and more years” than just the “plus one.”


On Thursday, French sports outlet L’Equipe reported that Messi currently takes home €3.375 million ($3.7 million) a month from the Ligue 1 giants, which puts him third behind teammates Neymar in second and leader Kylian Mbappe.


Speaking earlier today in Spain, Yustewhile holding a press conference, confirmed his club’s interest in re-signing Messi.


“Leo [Messi] and his family know the affection I have for them. I participated in the negotiations that unfortunately did not lead to a successful conclusion,” Yuste began, reminiscing about the Argentine’s exit.


“I have the thorn in my side that Leo could not continue in our club. If we are talking about La Masia and grassroots football, we are talking about Messi.


“Of course I would love for him to come back, for what it could represent at a sporting, social and economic level. We are in contact with them, yes,” Yuste confirmed.
