‘Expected to increase revenue by more than 25%’ Another reason Barcelona wants Messi to return

Barcelona expects the return of Lionel Messi to bring a huge revenue boost to the club.

Spanish media ‘Mundo Deportivo’ said on the 19th (Korean time) that one of the reasons why Barcelona want Messi to return is for financial reasons, saying, “We expect that the club’s revenue will increase by 25% through the recruitment of Messi. Optimistically, 33% There is also an expectation that it will reach,” he reported.

Messi, who had only played for Barcelona since his professional debut, moved to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in the summer of 2021. Messi wanted to stay, but due to the club’s finances, Barcelona could not afford to catch him. Even if Messi cut his salary by the set limit, it wasn’t enough. In the end, he tearfully said goodbye and left for Paris, France.먹튀검증

As Messi and PSG’s contract expires, rumors of a return to Barcelona are surging. Messi signed a two-year contract at the time of his transfer, and the contract ends in June this year. There was a prospect that contract renewal negotiations would proceed after the 2022 Qatar World Cup, but news of a renewal agreement with PSG has not yet been heard.

Barcelona are hoping for Messi’s return. The same goes for fans, coach Xavi Hernandez, and fellow players. Recently, Barcelona’s movements have also been captured. Earlier this month, reports surfaced that Barcelona president Juan Laporta had a meeting with Messi’s father and agent, Jorge Messi.

If Messi makes a comeback, it can help the team in terms of skills and symbolism as well as financial aspects. ‘Mundo Deportivo’ reported that the economic value that Messi brought to the club when he was in Barcelona in the past ranged from 250 million euros (approximately 364.1 billion won) to 300 million euros (approximately 437 billion won).
