Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi will reclaim the captaincy of Barcelona if he returns to the Catalan giants this summer.
Following the departure of Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, and Gerard Pique from the club, Blaugrana squad members will once again cast their votes to select the captains of the first team next season.
The consensus within the Camp Nou inner sanctum is clear: the squad itself should elect its own captain, according to Sportskeeda.
Messi’s return is looming ever closer, and the Argentine striker, if he decides to return to Camp Nou, is seen as a highly probable contender for the captaincy.
The Barcelona hierarchy is reportedly prepared to do anything within their power to bring back the greatest player in the club’s illustrious history.
Messi is held in the highest esteem within the Barcelona dressing room, as his influence stretches beyond his former teammates, reaching the newer entrants as well.
Notably, Messi had previously donned the captain’s armband for Barca, succeeding Andres Iniesta in 2018.
