LIONEL MESSI could make a powerful move back to Barcelona as his wife ‘didn’t enjoy life in France’, according to sensational reports.
The Argentine superstar, 34, only left the Nou Camp amid financial difficulties last summer.

Based on El NacionalAntonela Roccuzzo has told her husband she is unhappy in the French capital and is under pressure to move back to Catalonia.

Messi’s misery is also not limited to life away from the pitch.
Under Mauricio Pochettino and alongside Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, Messi has only scored one Ligue 1 goal in a season plagued with injuries and injuries.
And the report adds that old friends Xavi and Dani Alves are also trying to convince the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner to return to the Nou Camp.
However, his contract at PSG runs until 2023.
And it may prove impossible to reach an agreement before that then, especially after the painful defeat between Messi’s father and agent Jorge and Barca president Joan Laporta last summer.
Barcelona insist they cannot sign Messi under a new contract even with a large pay cut due to large debts.
But since then, the club have made a number of signings including paying up to £55m for Ferran Torres.
