Lionel Messi confirms plans to move back to Barcelona.
Lionel Messi said he will return to live in Fc Barcelona with his family when his contract at Paris St Germains over.
And Messi said he would like to help the LaLiga club in the role of a technical director.
“What is almost confirmed, is that we are going to live in Barcelona again and that our life will be there,” the 34 year old Argentine said in an interview with Spanish outlet Sport.
“ It’s what my wife wants and what I want. I don’t know when my contract with Paris St German ends, but we will go back to Barcelona to live.
“ I always said that I would love to be able to help the club … I would love to be a technical director at some point. I don’t know if it will be at FC Barcelona or not.
“If there is a possibility, I would like to contribute again because it is the club that I love and I would love for it to continue doing well, to continue being one of the best in the world.”
Fc Barcelona, who are ninth in LaLiga, sacked coach Ronald Koeman last week.
Messi limped off injured in Paris St German’s 2 – 1 win over champions, Lille, on Friday, but coach Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful he will be available for this week’s Champions League game at RB Leipzig.
