The rumour that Barcelona is negotiating a deal for Messi intensified on Thursday as a result of the release of a video showing the Blaugrana crest tattooed on Messi’s leg. The tattoo, however, is irrelevant to Messi’s future because, as MD has discovered, it is a component of a larger design the Argentine is preparing for his left leg and was conceptualised while he was still a member of the team two years ago.

Even if Lionel Messi might me one more trip to Barcelona this summer, it doesn’t seem like his new tattoo means he’ll be returning to Catalonia.
Lionel Messi receives the top Laureus world sports honours.
Lionel Messi, the captain of Argentina’s football team and champion of the FIFA World Cup 2022, was honoured as the Laureus Sportsman of the Year for 2023 on May 8 at a ceremony in Paris. And it was the first live Laureus Sports Awards ceremony since 2020 that took place in Paris on Monday night, honouring eight winners.
Lionel Messi made history by being the first athlete to receive the honour both individually and as a member of the year’s best team. In December 2022, Lionel Messi led the Argentina team to their first-ever FIFA World Cup victory. After the scores were tied at 3-3 at the conclusion of Extra Time, Messi’s Argentina defeated France in the penalty shootouts to win the championship.
“I achieved my dream and the whole country’s and it was the best thing that has happened to me and to everybody as a country after waiting for so long. So I would like to share this Award with all of Argentina”#Laureus23 World Sportsman of the Year Award Winner, Lionel Messi pic.twitter.com/gMG6oXNEWO

The winners of the Laureus World Sports Awards are chosen by the 71 members of the Laureus World Sports Academy, with the nominees chosen by the international media. Since the awards’ introduction in 2000, they have been given out annually. Since the award’s establishment, Roger Federer has won it five times, which is the most.
