Notice how leo used to be 💯 sure that he will return to Rosario once he retired but now he is not sure at all (he mentioned safety being main problem). In my opinion it will hard for him to return to Rosario because he lived in Barcelona since he was 12 and made friends, neighbors and community and I’m sure he won’t find the Rosario he knew when he was 12. Suarez straight up said he is staying in Barcelona . I think Messi eventually gonna do the same.
I agree! My guess is Leo started changing his mind around the time Thiago started going to school. His school looks expensive and reputable from what I saw and even tho he’s young, why mess with a good thing? And plus, as you said, all his formative memories are more Barcelona than Rosario. They’ll probably divide their time between Rosario and Barcelona—Argentina for holidays and Barcelona for the rest of it.
