I like him – Real Madrid coach, Ancelotti speaks on Messi returning to Barcelona

Real Madrid boss, Carlo Ancelotti, is the latest to comment on the possible return of Lionel Messi to Barcelona.

Ancelotti said he likes Messi as a player, adding that it would not be an issue for him should the Argentina World Cup winner return to Barcelona this summer.

Messi, who currently plays for Paris Saint-Germain, has been heavily linked with a return to Barcelona this summer transfer window.

The 35-year-old is yet to sign a new deal with PSG, as his contract will expire at the end of the season.

“Messi can do what he wants, and so can Barcelona,” Ancelotti said in a news conference on Monday ahead of Real Madrid’s trip to Girona on Tuesday.

“It is not an issue for me. I like him as a player. It could be nice for Spanish football to have him (back). But it is a matter for Messi and Barcelona.”
