Edgardo “Paton” Bauza will travel to Barcelona to meet With Lionel Messi

Buenos Aires, Argentina – Barcelona star Lionel Messi will once again wear the Argentina national jersey again, according to news outlet Ole and German Garcia Grova from TyC Sports.

New manager Edgardo “Paton” Bauza will travel to Barcelona next week to meet with Messi. According to Ole, everything points at Messi returning to the Albiceleste and will return for the Russia World Cup Qualifying matches.

Messi announced that the national team “was over” for him just at the end of the Copa America Centenario final last June, after losing to Chile for the second consecutive year. The frustration of the moment led to the player, who has not won a major title for his country, to express its intention to end his international career.

Argentina will play next on September 1 and 6 against Uruguay and Venezuela, respectively.
