Gerard Romero reported minutes before Barca's La Liga match against Osasuna on Sunday that the Argentine's father and representative Jorge Messi had called the board a few days ago to inquire about a prodigal son Chapter Two for the club's best-ever player.

This could have happened following his present employers' humiliating defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League last 16-second leg, in which the Qatari-backed Ligue 1 giants were once again defeated by a remarkable comeback on the continent thanks to a Karim Benzema hat trick.

Meanwhile, Messi was booed by his own fans at the Parc des Princes as PSG beat Bordeaux early this afternoon, along with his former Barcelona teammate Neymar.

When asked about Romero's story, some have speculated that this is why president Joan Laporta slammed the door on a potential $338.5 million deal for Erling Haaland today.

"Mateu Alemany, Jordi Cruyff, and the crew are working on [signings]," Laporta said via Esport3. "I admire the enthusiasm of the fans, but some surgeries are quite challenging.

"Even if our financial condition is in the finest possible shape, there are some transactions we would refuse to do for the sake of the club." "We will not make any deals that jeopardize the club's [future]," Laporta stated.

After all, might Messi be Barcelona's major summer signing? "In the coming weeks, much more information about Messi's future and his return to Barcelona is expected," Romero stated.

Messi is still under contract at PSG until next year but might force his exit after leaving his boyhood club in tears as a free agent before this season since Barca was unable to offer him a new contract and traverse a strict La Liga salary cap.

His return to Catalonia, on the other hand, may not be welcomed by the local press. They have slammed both the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner and Neymar this weekend, claiming that the South American pair's best days are behind them.

"Leo is still liked and appreciated for his incredible record at Barca," Sport said, "but his departure from the Camp Nou is no longer lamented or chastised in light of his poor performance at the Qatari club." "He put his money on petrodollars, let himself be seduced by Paris, and chose a star club that has yet to field a soccer team. He fantasized about a stage full of glory and titles, but the reality is quite different; he is undergoing a sporting agony."

"There is no going back, even if Leo thinks about it in his dreams," the daily newspaper wrote. "The talk of a possible return to the Camp Nou isn't being taken seriously. A decadent Messi isn't required by Barcelona."
