Barcelona president Joan Laporta has confirmed the club have already completed two signings ahead of the summer transfer window but said they are not considering bringing Lionel Messi back to the club. Laporta did not name the two signings, but ESPN previously reported Barca have agreed deals with Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen and AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie ahead of their contracts expiring with their respective clubs in June.

Laporta mentioned that the club have sealed two signings already, adding that he can't give out any names yet but disclosed that one of the two players is a central defender and the other is a midfielder.

However, Laporta said a return for Messi is not on the table. Messi left for Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer last August but had been linked with a move back to Camp Nou after he was jeered by the Ligue 1 club's fans following their elimination from the Champions League.
He was quick to make it clear that he hasn't gotten any message from Messi or the attacker's camp regarding a possible signing. He also added that the club are not thinking about bringing Messi back and are instead focused on building a young squad. Joan Laporta has said Barcelona have completed two new signings ahead of the summer transfer window.
Laporta said a hypothetical Messi return would not be a step back for either party, although he added his relationship with the player has suffered since they parted. But he refused to be drawn on links with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski, although he did confirm he is a big fan of Atletico Madrid's Joao Felix, confirming Barca attempted to sign him in exchange for Antoine Griezmann last year.
Laporta also said talks to extend Gavi and Ronald Araujo's contracts are progressing well, but hinted that Sergi Roberto could leave the club when he deal expires this summer after previously turning down the chance to renew.
