Barcelona president, Joan Laporta has talked up the possibility of bringing back Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta to the Nou Camp.
After being re-elected as the club’s president earlier this year, Laporta has arguably been handed the toughest job in football.
The LaLiga giants have debts of more than a billion pounds and had no choice but to let Messi join Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer upon the expiration of his contract.
With that said, things could be on the up as the Barca president refused to rule out a return for both club legends.
With 38-year-old Dani Alves re-joining and Xavi coming back as their new manager, Laporta clearly wants to get the band back together.
“I don’t rule anything out,” Laporta said as Alves was unveiled.
“It happened with Dani, age is a number. They’re two great players.
“I can’t predict what will happen tomorrow, they’re still playing & contracted to other clubs. You never know…”
Injuries have blighted Messi since joining PSG and as such, he has only made five appearances in Ligue 1 so far.
It would be recalled that Messi discussed the possibility of returning to the club but in an off-field role.
