The Argentinian Lionel Messi was captured at the exit of a prestigious restaurant in Barcelona and the local media reported that he was not alone, but accompanied by three former FC Barcelona teammates: Xavi Hernández, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.
Any type of speculation was generated about this meeting, including that of a possible return of Messi to Barcelona due to his poor results in Paris. But nevertheless, the reason for the meeting was the eve of Xavi Hernández’s 42nd birthday.
The new coach of the Catalan club celebrates his birthday and Messi took advantage of the fact that he did not travel to Buenos Aires, for the Qualifiers with the Argentine National Team, and met with him to share such an important date.
Xavi, whose birthday is this Tuesday, Busquets and Alba are still at FC Barcelona, while Messi decided to make the leap to PSG. The four dined at a Japanese restaurant with their partners, plus Leo’s inseparable friend: Pepe Costa.
Messi was approached by the press, who were looking for a statement from Rosario. He didn’t speak, but he did sign some jerseys.
