It's the kind of little phrase that means everything and nothing at the same time, but above all has the consequence of reviving a multitude of debates. As he was about to board a taxi at El Prat airport in Barcelona, Lionel Messi's father, Jorge, was questioned by several Catalan supporters curious about the future of his son, ex - Barça prodigy left for PSG this summer. When they ask him if the winner of the last Ballon d'Or will postpone the Blaugrana jersey, the father launches "I hope that one day, yes". A scene captured and relayed by the program El Chiringuito.
The case caused a little stir in Spain, and this is how the technical director of FC Barcelona, Mateu Alamany, found himself talking about the case in front of a Movistar camera. "I don't know the statements and I guess if they have something to say, they will tell us," he simply said, as if to calm the game of this potential rumor for the summer transfer window.
