Lionel Messi has reportedly made a final decision on potentially returning to Barcelona as a player following interesting comments from the Spanish club's president, Joan Laporta.

Messi Makes 'Weird' Ramos Admission

After Xavi Hernandez returned to the Catalan giants as manager earlier this month, it was claimed that Messi might be interested in a homecoming of his own.

The 34-year-old made a shock exit from Barcelona in August before signing for Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent, after the Spanish club confirmed they could not afford to offer him a new contract due to their financial struggles.

Laporta then caused a stir a few months later by hinting that he believed Messi could have made more of an effort to stay at the Camp Nou, while he also recently praised Dani Alves for making a "significant financial effort to return".

That remark led to the suggestion that Laporta felt that the six-time Ballon d'Or winner had not, leading to more friction between the Barcelona chief and the club's former captain.

Messi later explained he was "hurt" by the comments made by the club chief, with AS and Sport now reporting that the PSG forward has no intention of returning to Barcelona as a player.

He could, however, go back to the LaLiga giants once he has retired from football, having said recently that he would consider giving back to the club in an advisory role in the future.

Messi and PSG will be in action on Wednesday night when they meet Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League.

Here are nine players who left Barcelona, directly or indirectly, because of Messi:
