The Argentine forward has been heavily touted for a Barcelona return

Amid rumours of Leo Messi's return to Camp Nou, Pedri has sent an unexpected wink to the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner on social media. The Argentinian is on everyone's lips and the Catalan giants are working on the player's return next summer.

Leo Messi is Barça's priority target in the next transfer window. The return of the best player in history is the desire of the Barça board and the fans who want to say goodbye to the Argentine after leaving through the back door.

However, although the club says that everything possible is being done to allow Messi to enjoy a second spell at Barcelona, the operation remains complicated due to the economic situation of the club, who are working to solve the financial fair play and make room for the Argentinian.

In the midst of negotiations for a possible return of the player, Pedri has taken the opportunity to send an affectionate nod to Leo Messi on his social networks. The Canary Islander was one of the best team-mates the Argentinian had in his last year as a member of the Catalan giants and they could coincide again this coming season.

The Barça midfielder has responded on TheResidncy, an app for chatting with players, to the question of which football legend he would have liked to play with. Pedri, who has always recognised the Argentine as the best of all time, replied that "I've already played with the best in history" in a new nod towards Leo Messi's return to Barça.
