Three World Cup champions, including Messi, potentially joining FC Barcelona

El Nacional reports that FC Barcelona is considering signing three Qatar 2022 World Cup winners this summer, one of whom being Lionel Messi. His contract with Paris Saint-Germain is set to expire on June 30, and Barcelona’s president has been working on a plan to bring him back to Camp Nou. Though Messi has reportedly been offered €350 million by Al Hilal, a Saudi club, his agent denies any deal is in progress. Another potential signing for Barcelona is Angel Di Maria, who played a crucial role in Argentina’s victory in the final of the World Cup against France. While he is currently playing for Juventus, there is a high probability that he will not renew his contract, and his former club Benfica is interested in him.

The third possible signing from Argentina’s WC team is Leandro Paredes. Although he is on loan from PSG and playing for Juventus, he has no intention of staying in Italy or France. As his contract expires in 2023/2024, PSG may try to sell him to garner as much profit as possible.
