Paris Saint-Germain star Lionel Messi has reportedly given two conditions for Barcelona to sign him this summer.

Lionel Messi is set to become a free agent in the summer, and he is of interest to Barcelona in Europe, Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia, and Inter Miami in the MLS.

The 35-year-old World Cup winner is said to prioritise a move to Barcelona to the bumper contract tabled by the Saudi-based club; however, he has reportedly given the Blaugrana conditions for them to land him.

Messi wants the number 10 

According to Relevo's Matteo Moretto, the former Barcelona captain wants the number 10 jersey he wore before leaving the club when he returns.

At PSG, Messi opted for the number 30, refusing to take the 10 from Neymar and instead wearing the figures he debuted with.

However, per the report, he wants the number back. The jersey is currently donned by Ansu Fati, a player heavily reported to be on his way out of the club, to improve Barcelona's finances ahead of the summer transfer window. 


As Pulse Sports reported here, the left-footed magician has given Barcelona a 10-day ultimatum to send him an offer. 

Messi already has an offer from Saudi Arabia, according to multiple reports, and he does not want to remain clubless for long with the season winding to a close.
