Lionel Messi has given a new interview where he’s talked up the possibility of returning to Barcelona at some point in the future.

The GOAT is currently with French side Paris Saint-Germain after being forced to leave the Camp Nou over the summer.

Messi says he’d love to come back and work as the club’s technical secretary once he’s finally hung up his boots.

“I always said that I would love to help the club and be useful. I would love to be a technical secretary at some point. I don’t know if it will be in Barcelona or not. Or if it will be something else,” he said.

“If there’s the chance, I would like to go back and contribute what I can because it’s the club I love and I would love them to keep doing well, growing and being one of the best in the world.”
