The Genius Media Nigeria reports that Messi, who left Barcelona in the summer transfer window for PSG, said he was open to the idea of returning to the Catalan club as a technical secretary after hanging up his boots.
The 34-year-old expressed his intention to be part of Barcelona’s senior management in the future.
“Yes, I always said that I would like to come back to help the club [Barcelona] in whatever way,” Messi told Sport.
“I want to be useful and help so that the club is doing well. I would love to be a technical secretary, but I don’t know if it will be at Barcelona.
“I would like to return to the club to contribute what I can because I love [Barcelona] and I would love them to keep doing well, to continue growing and to continue to be among the best in the world.”
Messi enjoyed a trophy-laden spell during his 21 years at Barcelona, winning the Champions League, LaLiga, Copa del Rey and others.
