According to Reports, Lionel Messi Will Rejoin Barcelona on July 1, 2023



Lionel Messi will return to Barcelona next summer after making ‘peace’ with the club’s president following his dramatic exit two years ago. 

Messi Comes Back!

After Barca announced in a statement that he would be leaving owing to financial constraints placed on them by LaLiga, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner joined PSG.

However, when his contract in the French capital expires the following summer, Messi—who joined PSG in 2021—is reportedly planning to return to Barcelona.

After making peace’ with Barcelona president Joan Laporta, who was at the center of the dispute two years ago, it is thought that Messi will rejoin the team.

After his deal with Barcelona finished in 2021, Messi was able to sign with any team. However, following fruitful first negotiations between all parties, he was prepared to sign again with the club.

However, Barca released a shocking statement announcing that Messi will be departing because of structural and economic challenges (Spanish LaLiga regulations).

Leo Messi and FC Barcelona reached an agreement, and both parties clearly intended to sign a new contract today, according to the statement, but it was unable to be finalized because to structural and financial challenges (Spanish LaLiga regulations).

Given the circumstances, Lionel Messi will no longer be associated with FC Barcelona. Both parties sincerely regret that their wishes as well as those of the Club are ultimately unfulfilled.

“Barca wishes the player the best in his personal and professional life and would like to thank him from the bottom of its heart for his commitment to the improvement of the institution.”

Messi was reportedly stunned by the news because, in exchange for staying at the club, he had agreed to accept a wage cut of 50% from his previous contract, which was worth more than £425 million over four years.

On the proposed new five-year contract, this would have resulted in a £250,000 weekly salary reduction for Messi. But he concurred.

Messi had been strongly connected with both Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain as a result, and he was devastated to learn of his departure.

PSG appeared to be the more likely option because Messi had recently reconnected with Neymar, a close friend and former teammate, only days before Barcelona made their announcement.

Neymar, who left Barca for PSG in 2017, had expressed publicly his desire to one day rejoin with the Argentine.

Neymar got what he wanted. The Ligue 1 giants and Messi agreed to a two-year contract for a stunning £35 million per season.

Messi had a challenging beginning to his tenure at PSG. Soon after making his debut in France, he was mentioned in connection with a return to Barcelona.

Additionally, he failed to win over the crowd, who booed him during games following PSG’s Champions League Round of 16 loss to Real Madrid.

Dani Alves, Messi’s old teammate, even urged him to rejoin the organization after making his own comeback at the Nou Camp as a result.

Messi is currently thriving in the French top division, though. In his last five games, he has scored seven goals. Messi has excelled for Argentina on the international level as well.

He got two goals for Lionel Scaloni’s team against Honduras before adding two more against Jamaica.

According to rumours, Messi is still considering playing for Barcelona again next year. Messi has always adored Barcelona and has talked about going back there someday.

At the age of 16, Messi made his senior squad debut for Barcelona in 2004. Since then, he has made 778 appearances and established himself as a significant player.

He eventually broke the record for most goals scored by a Barca player with 672, including 120 goals in the Champions League and a record 474 in La Liga.

When questioned about Messi’s return to Barcelona, Xavi urged restraint. Leo, let’s see, but right now isn’t the time to discuss it, he added. You are aware of my love for him.

“He is a friend, and I’ll always hope the best for him.” Although Barca is his home, we aren’t doing him any favours by discussing [his future]. Let’s wish him the best and let him enjoy his time in Paris in peace.


Kevin Feige Confirms Spider-Man 4 with Tom Holland



Kevin Feige verified the information about Thanos resetting the cosmos in an interview with Entertainment Weekly (via UNILAD). Yet we’re not grumbling about it. Official confirmation of Tom Holland’s participation in Spider-Man 4 has come from Kevin Feige, president of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With that in mind, fans and viewers of the MCU have been relieved about the news while also being eager for more of the iconic superhero!

Making Headlines

Spider-Man: No Way Home, Tom Holland’s final performance, was released in 2021 and was absolutely fantastic. Feige said, probably in reference to Spider-Man 4 and No Way Home, “We were all treating (No Way Home) as the end of a franchise. If we were fortunate enough to explore these characters once more, we believe you would see a completely different version. If we had anything to say about it, this would be huge news!

A Surprising Return

This is significant news since when Holland finished his first trilogy with the critically acclaimed and financially successful Spider-Man: No Way Home, the future of his Spider-Man tenure was in some doubt. A multiverse-spanning, multiple Spider-Man-starring epic, that movie was an incredible smash hit, grossing more than $1 billion worldwide (the first cinematic release to do so), and energizing fans with the reunion of both Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield in their respective forms as Peter Parker.

Spider-Man 4’s narrative or release date remain unknown at this time, but the tiny symbiote fragment still present in the MCU may have a significant impact. Naturally, Spider-Man won’t miss out on Avengers Secret Wars, Marvel’s upcoming major event, which is set to take place in 2026. Yet another huge announcement that we’re all waiting for and something that we can look forward to, hopefully we can get our money’s worth when a new movie comes out!

Whoopi Goldberg Retracts Her Insult on The View




Whoopi Goldberg recently got into some trouble after calling the Romani people an insensitive name during an episode of The View.

“Wokeness” is complicated

The actor-turned-talk show host claimed during a discussion about the late President Donald Trump that his fans believed he was ‘gypped’ in the 2020 election.

Unbeknownst to Goldberg, the phrase “gypped,” which meaning “to rip someone off,” is probably originated from the word “gypsy,” an insult used to designate the nomadic Romani people, according to Merriam-Webster.

Social media users reacted angrily to Goldberg’s usage of the phrase as a result.

Whoopi Goldberg’s apology is well-deserved, according to one user. “Gypsies are a real class of people with their own unique hardships, and they are most often stereotyped by ignorant pretentious entitled elitists individuals like Whoopi Goldberg, and it shows,” the user added.

“I don’t know how many more’slip ups’ by Whoopi need to be done before the ABC Network takes a position,” a second stated. “I’m not even sure why The View is still there given the nonsense they’ve said and done. I guess they condone it to let it to continue.”

Shortly after the show aired, The View’s official Twitter account published an apologetic video in response to people criticizing the presenter.

You know, when you get to a certain age, you start using words you remember saying or knowing from when you were a kid. That’s what I did today, and I shouldn’t have.

“I should have thought about it a little longer before I said it, but I didn’t, and I should have said ‘cheated,’ but I used another word. And I’m really, very sorry,” the 67-year-old actor continued.

She apologized, trying not to smile as she said.

She received harsh criticism for her apology as a result.

“Don’t trust her. She’s lying yet again. She meant precisely what she stated,” one user commented.

A second person said, “Oops, I did it again.”

Some social media users also noted that they were unaware that the term “gypped,” or the incorrect spelling “jipped,” was insulting.

In 2013, University of Texas at Austin professor Ian Hancock, whose Romani parents were born in Britain, described how the phrase affects people of Romani heritage to NPR.

Many frequently claim to him that they were unaware that the word “gypped” had anything to do with gypsies or that it is insulting, especially when the word is spoken rather than read, he added.

“That’s okay. You didn’t know but now you do. So stop using it. That may mean nothing to you, but when we hear it, it still hurts,” is my reply to them.

So there you have it.

Baby boomers who are ranting on social media about how the ‘awake’ world has gone insane, take note: it is no longer appropriate to compare Romani people to liars, cheaters, and thieves.

When you’re more than willing to hurt their feelings, don’t whine about how “wokeness” has wounded your feelings.
