Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez said, "Barcelona's 'doors are open to Messi"

Xavi was speaking in a press conference ahead of the Clasico on Sunday, when Barcelona face La Liga leaders Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Messi has endured a disappointing season at Paris Saint-Germain although Barcelona's dire financial situation would make re-signing the Argentinian difficult.

La Liga's latest spending restrictions published last week set Barcelona's limit at $159 million. It means the club will have to make considerable savings to sign anyone in the next transfer window.

Messi was let go last year because Barcelona could not afford to renew his contract, bringing an emotional end to the striker's historic career at Camp Nou.
