Could Lionel Messi arrive at Barcelona on loan in January?

Yes, when everything seemed to indicate that the possibility of Leo Messi's return to FC Barcelona was buried for good, in the last few hours rumors have once again sparked up. It is true that it takes less than a spark even, for part of Barcelonismo to get their hopes up. 

The fact is that from various sectors it has been pointed out that if Inter Miami, the current club of the Rosario-born star, does not qualify for the MLS playoffs Barça could try to approach for a loan in January.


The Florida team would have to perform a miracle to reach the playoffs for the title. The latest defeat against Chicago Fire (without Messi, injured) has made it even more complicated.

Thus, it would be technically possible to carry out the operation. Jorge Mas, the owner of the Miami club, promised Leo a farewell at his level in Barcelona. But of course, he meant a tribute. 

The fact is that Barça is aware of the matter and is aware that 'Lio' will be a few months without competing with his club. There have been no moves, but it is something that is known and contemplated. 

Consulted by SPORT, sources from the North American club and the player say at no time has that possibility been discussed. It is true that Jorge Mas assured him total predisposition to have the tribute in Barcelona, but it has not been contemplated or spoken about. Nothing has been said about a possible transfer or loan.
