Leo Messi has returned to Barcelona. The Argentine star of Paris Saint Germain made a fuss after being photographed at the exit of a restaurant where Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba were having dinner and where they accidentally coincided with Barça coach Xavi Hernández, who had chosen the same place for dinner.
The three footballers and the Barcelona coach met at a Japanese restaurant on the outskirts of the city. Alba and Busquets went with their wives to this exclusive restaurant in Barcelona, where Pepe Costa, a former employee of the Barça club, was also having dinner.
At the end of the dinner, Leo Messi did not want to make any statement to reporters who were at the restaurant door. He stopped to sign the jersey of a Barcelona fan, but did not want to answer for a possible return to his team of heart.
Messi's return to Barcelona coincides with the closing of the winter transfer window, although his meeting with former teammates had nothing to do with a possible return to the Camp Nou. It was simply a casual meeting between friends taking advantage of permission given by his coach, Mauricio Pochettino, due to the Ligue 1 break.
