Lionel Messi will meet the President of FC Barcelona, Juan Laporta at the FIFA The Best gala. The Argentinian is a finalist and the favorite to win this award, while Juan Laporta travels to Paris together with Barcelona vice president Rafa Yuste, Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski and Alexia Putellas who plays for Barca women and is expected to revalidate the award in the category of women.

What is exciting for all Barcelona fans is that Laporta will undoubtedly meet Leo Messi during the ceremony. This meeting comes shortly after Messi’s father, Jorge Messi, had met Laporta, in which case he had confirmed that the relationship between Messi and Barcelona is positive.

Also, a few days ago, Barcelona coach Xavi said that Messi has the door open if he wants to return to Barcelona.

This meeting and the fact that Leo Messi has not yet signed the contract with PSG has fueled speculation and excitement among Barcelona fans.

Robert Lewandowski is among the 14 finalists to win the award

From the Barcelona team, Robert Lewandowski is one of the 14 finalists to win the FIFA Best award. The Polish striker is going through a good form in Barcelona and is currently the leading goalscorer with 15 goals.

Although the favorite to win this FIFA The Best award, as mentioned above, is the Argentinian Lionel Messi. Two months ago he won the World Cup with Argentina after a long wait and had a fantastic performance during the championship, being chosen as man of the match in 4 matches.
