It is fair to assume that Lionel Messi has not had the best of times a year after ending his 20-year chapter at Barcelona.
The Argentine is coming off of what was probably his poorest professional season yet, scoring just six goals in Ligue 1. There is a perception that Messi's influence is decreasing, despite Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the president of PSG, supporting him to succeed in the upcoming season.
The prodigal son's return to Barcelona was discussed during the January transfer window, but club president Joan Laporta shot off the rumors, implying there is no chance of it happening anytime soon.
Messi and Barcelona appear to be getting further apart, according to an ARA report. There hasn't been any communication with the player on the event since Laporta expressed his willingness to organize a farewell for the Argentine.
Due to a lack of communication, Messi's connection with the Barcelona locker room has also deteriorated. He does, however, continue to have a fantastic working relationship with the captains, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.
Even after his contract with Barça expires, Busquets hopes to rejoin Messi by joining Inter Miani the following summer.
Meanwhile, Messi wants to go back to Barcelona, but not as a player. He would be willing to take on sports management-related duties or even work as a technical director.
The international player from Argentina appears to choose an executive position over a coaching position.
According to the ARA report, Barcelona does not owe money to its former captain because the accounts were cleared before he joined PSG last summer.
