Real Madrid know they have a fight on their hands this year if they are to defend their La Liga title.
Barcelona’s impressive showing in the transfer market means that the Blaugrana pose a real threat to Los Blancos this season.
Real also know that the only thing more threatening than the current Barcelona side are a Barcelona side with Lionel Messi.
Barcelona are desperate to bring Messi back to the club. But unfortunately, Messi left the club when his contract expired, and Barcelona couldn’t afford to renew it. He then signed for Paris Saint-Germain in France.
Sportskeeda now reports that Real are determined to prevent the PSG superstar from making a sensational return to Barcelona. Messi only has one year left on his contract with the French side.
However, new sources report that Real Madrid is planning to hinder Barcelona’s plans. It’s unclear how Madrid plans to stop a deal going through, but they will be hoping that PSG commits the Argentinian legend to a new contract in France.

However, it is unclear how Real Madrid intends to wreck the Blaugrana’s attempts to re-sign Messi.
The player is keen on returning to the Nou Camp and may not want to extend his stay in France.
