Dani Alves has pleaded with former teammate, Lionel Messi to return to Barcelona for a ‘last dance’ together.
Messi has struggled to adapt to life at Paris Saint-Germain following his stunning exit from Barcelona last summer.
The Argentine superstar, who has forged a career on his incredible goalscoring statistics, has only netted three times in 27 domestic games for the French side this season.
Alves said in an interview with Catalan media outlet Diario Sport: “I don’t know what he thinks or wants to do. “He could come back for a little year with me for a last dance. Why not?
“There’s nowhere better than here. We cannot be better off than at Barca. He left and tried the experience. It’s time to return home if he wants.”
Messi enjoyed incredible success at Barcelona, with fullback Alves playing a key part in the 23 trophies that they won together at the Nou Camp. However, reports have indicated that the Argentine superstar has failed to settle in Paris and at the club.
He has also failed to win over the fans that have booed him in matches since PSG’s Champions League collapse to Real Madrid in the Round of 16. Messi failed to make an impact in either leg as Carlo Ancelotti’s side came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 on aggregate.
