Barcelona to sell three key players to re-sign Messi


Barcelona could reportedly sell three key players to help finance a re-sign of Lionel Messi from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

According to Spanish news outlet Fichajes, Barcelona are willing to get the likes of Franck Kessie, Raphinha and Andreas Christensen off the books to raise funds to accommodate their legend, Messi.

Messi left his boyhood club Barcelona in August 2021 for PSG.

But a return to Camp Nou has been touted ever since and with his contract with PSG now set to expire in June, his future has come under the scanner once more.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta recently confirmed Messi’s return to the club when a fan asked him about the same in a recent clip that went viral on social media.

However, given Barcelona’s financial constraints right at the moment, signing Messi back won’t be that straightforward, as the Blaugrana will have to lighten up their wage bill first by selling off some players such as Kessie, Raphinha and Christensen, according to the report.
