Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski has lent his voice to the calls for Lionel Messi to return to the club this summer, insisting that forging a partnership with the Argentina captain would be easy.

PSG star Lionel Messi will bring his two-year stay in Paris to an end this summer and his likely destination remains former stomping ground, Nou Camp, home of Barcelona.
