Football: Messi’s Barca return bid suffers setback

…as two players of the club refused to lower their salaries to accommodate Messi

The hopes of having Lionel Messi return to Barcelona to continue his football career have received a huge blow.

This was after two players of the club refused to lower their salaries.

Sources claimed that Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen were reached out to by the Blaugrana to reduce their wages in order to accommodate the veteran forward.

According to the report, both players, who joined the Catalan giants from AC Milan and Chelsea, respectively last summer, refused.

The club now faces a monumental task if they have to bring the Paris Saint-Germain forward back to the club due to their ongoing financial struggles.

The Argentine superstar left the Catalan giants and moved to the Parc des Princes in the summer of 2021 after his contract expired at Camp Nou, with the club hit by a financial crisis.

The World Cup winner again looks set to depart PSG when his contract expires this summer after turning down an offer to extend his deal.
