The President of Barcelona Discusses Messi and Iniesta’s Potential Returns
Following the arrival of Dani Alves at the Camp Nou, Barcelona president Joan Laporta has refused to rule out the possibility of club legends Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta returning.
The Brazilian was unveiled at a ceremony at the Camp Nou on Wednesday, November 17th, for a second spell.
According to Marca, the 38-year-old has followed legend Xavi in returning to the club, and Laporta was asked at a press conference if Messi and Iniesta might do the same.
He said, “I don’t rule it out.”
“These are the people who have made this club what it is today.
I can’t predict the future because they’re still playing, but Messi and Iniesta have made the club great, and we always keep them in mind, even though they now have contracts with other clubs, which you have to respect, but you never know in life.”

Xavi, according to Laporta, needed Alves.
Laporta also discussed Barcelona’s decision to bring Alves back to the club.
