Lionel Messi has returned to Barcelona after netting a world-class bicycle kick for Paris Saint-Germain in the weekend during their 5-0 demolition of Clermont Foot.

The 35-year old scored a brace and provided an assist in PSG’s opening game in the new Ligue 1 season on Saturday night.

With the French side’s next game coming up later this week, Messi left Paris and arrived in Barcelona to spend few days with his family before returning for training with PSG.

Since he landed in the city who saw him growing over the last 20 years, reports claim Barcelona’s hierarchy started negotiations with the five-time ballon d’or over the possibility of his comeback to the Nou Camp.

Lionel Messi has one-year left on his current contract with Paris Saint-Germain with an option to extend it.

However, la Pulga will only take a decision over his future at PSG after the World Cup he wants to win with Argentin.

Meanwhile, in Barcelona Joan Laporta and Xavi Hernandez continue to lure him as they intend to give him a well-deserved farewell.
