Lionel Messi who signed for PSG last summer after 20 years at the Camp Nou, arrived in Barcelona yesterday to meet with his friends.

The reason for his arrival was the birthday of Xavi Hernandez, Messi's former teammate and current Barcelona coach. Besides Messi and Xavi, only Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, with whom the Argentine is also a good friend, attended the dinner.

This meeting was enough for the Barcelona fans to start dreaming, ie to hope that Messi could return to the "Camp Nou", although such a thing at a time when the club has debts of 1.5 billion euros, is not possible.

- Messi's relationship with Xavi and Busquets for years is strong and good. Messi was one of the first to congratulate Xavi when he became the coach of Barcelona and will use every opportunity to be in the city where he spent 20 years of his life. Messi still loves Barcelona, ​​no matter how he left, his love and connection to the club are eternal - said journalist Ashraf Ben Ayad, who is a good friend of the Argentine.
