Lionel Messi’s trip to Barcelona

Lionel Messi took advantage of the weekend off to go to Spain with his family.

Messi and his family landed in Barcelona on Saturday, as journalist Gerard Romero revealed on his Twitch channel.

The Argentine forward, whose contract with PSG ends on 30 June, is Barça’s main target this summer.

Messi spent a few days with his wife and three children at his home in Castelldefels as coach PSG coach Christophe Galtier had given his players a break until Tuesday.

Argentine outlet Diario Olé reported on Monday that the Argentinian went for a bike ride in Barcelona, a place he still considers home.

On Sunday, Barcelona and the surrounding area celebrated Sant Jordi, one of the oldest and most traditional celebrations in the region.

Along with the rumours of a possible return to Barcelona, Messi went for a walk near his home in Castelldefels with his wife Antonella and sons Thiago, Mateo and Ciro.

PSG pushing

Mundo Deportivo report that PSG are still trying to convince Messi to stay in Paris.

Despite the fact that he will turn 36 on 24 June, the Argentine star is clear that he wants to continue competing at the highest level, and he will wait to weigh up the offers coming his way before he makes a final decision on his next move.
