Matias Messi declared that the Seven times Ballon d’Or winner will never return to Barcelona as long as Laporta is still the club’s President.

The current World Cup winner Lionel Messi left the Catalan club in 2021 amid financial chaos for Barcelona.

According to Matias Messi, Lionel Messi put Barcelona on top of the world during his tenure at Camp Nou.

Matias said that Barcelona are not grateful for not recognizing the greatness of Messi who won ten La Ligas and four Champions League trophy with the Blaugrana, including individual honors.

“I don’t know about you, but Barcelona came to be famous thanks to Messi”, his brother declared on the streaming platform Twitch. “Whoever has the chance to go to Barcelona and see the Museum, you’ll see that the museum is Messi”.

During his sad 2021 departure from Barca, Matias Messi blamed Catalonian fans for betraying his brother. Earlier that year, Laporta had returned to the club as president and promised to keep the Argentine legend when his contract had expired.

The Blaugrana leader was successful in that Messi did decide he wanted to sign a new contract, but he was eventually unable to do so due to the financial turmoil that enveloped and continues to devour the club.

Messi’s departure from Barca is official as of early August 2021, after the club was unable to convince him to sign a contract extension without violating LaLiga rules.

Matias has pointed the finger of responsibility at Laporta, alleging that he, not his brother, should have resigned from his position as a club official in light of the ongoing drama.

Messi joined Paris Saint-Germain after a heartbreaking departure from Barcelona, where he had scored 672 goals in 778 matches and helped the club win the Champions League four times, among many other significant honors.

Xavi Hernandez, Messi’s manager and former teammate from the mid-2000s, hinted at Messi’s possible comeback to the club last November, fueling rumors that Messi will one day return.

The fact that Laporta’s tenure in power is due to last until 2027, the year Messi would turn 40, combined with Matias’s scathing statements about his brother’s treatment, imply the Paris Saint-Germain superstar will not seal an emotional homecoming.

This summer, the World Cup winner’s contract in the French capital will expire, and as a result, there has been much conjecture about his future at PSG. Extending the contract is an option, as is a move to Major League Soccer’s Inter Miami or a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia.
