Ferran Torres speaks out on potential Lionel Messi return to Barcelona and player sentiment

 The transfer window is open, and rumors about Lionel Messi's next club continue to swirl. Messi left Barcelona in August 2021 after a 21-year career with the club, and his future has been the subject of much speculation ever since. However, a recent comment from Manchester City's Ferran Torres has added fuel to the fire, suggesting that Messi's former Barcelona teammates want him back at the club.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Spain's World Cup qualifying match against Georgia, Torres was asked about Messi's possible return to Barcelona. "I think the players at Barça would like to have Messi back," Torres said, "because he's one of the best players in history and he can help any team win."

Messi spent his entire professional career at Barcelona, winning numerous titles and awards along the way. However, he left the club last year after they were unable to agree on a new contract. Since then, he has been linked with a number of clubs, including Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, and MLS side Inter Miami.

However, Torres' comments suggest that Messi's former teammates would be delighted to have him back at the Camp Nou. The Spanish winger, who joined Manchester City from Valencia in 2020, has played against Messi and Barcelona several times in his career and is familiar with their style of play.

But whether or not Messi will return to Barcelona remains to be seen. The club is currently in a state of flux, with new president Joan Laporta trying to rebuild the team after a disappointing season. And while the prospect of having Messi back in the side is undoubtedly tempting, it remains to be seen if the club can afford his wages and if they have the financial clout to compete with other clubs.

For now, Messi remains a free agent, and his future is the subject of much speculation. However, with the transfer window open and clubs eager to strengthen their squads, it's possible that we may see Messi in a new team sooner rather than later.
