Lionel Messi was persuaded to rejoin the team by two players, according to Barcelona striker Ferran Torres.
Torres claims that players like Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets are working behind the scenes to make Messi’s rumoured comeback a reality.
Messi is currently in the last months of his deal with Paris Saint-Germain after leaving Barcelona in the summer of 2021.
The Argentina captain has been strongly linked with a return to Barcelona but has not yet agreed to a new contract about an extension.
“Well, some rumours have come out, I would like a farewell at Camp Nou to match what he has given to Barça, it would be nice,” Torres told Mundo Deportivo about Messi.
“They [Alba and Busquets] are already doing their job, if that is what you want to get out of me, yes. I don’t think they need to convince him.”
Leo Messi, also known as Lionel Andrés Messi, is an Argentine professional football player who plays forward for Ligue 1 team Paris Saint-Germain and captains the Argentina national team. He was born on June 24, 1987.
