Earlier in 2020, Messi made headlines after expressing his desire to leave Camp Nou after Barcelona were thrashed 8-2 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final in Lisbon.

Soon after the announcement, Messi made a dramatic U-turn and decided to stay back at Barcelona as he did not want to get into a legal tussle with the club that has given him everything. Also, the then President Josep Maria Bartomeu refused to let him go.

But with Barcelona playing some fine football under manager Ronald Koeman, Messi seems to have started believing in a future at the club.

Nothing is confirmed, the matter remains in the assessment zone and Messi is expected to monitor the situation from time to time.

Fans would be excited to see Messi stay back at Barcelona as most associate him with the Spanish club and cannot think of him donning another jersey.
