"I don't know if that'll happen when my PSG contract is up. What's almost confirmed and certain is that we'll return to Barcelona to live and our lives will be there," Messi told Spanish outlet SPORT.
"That's what my wife and I want. I don't know what'll happen when my PSG contract ends, but we'll go back to live in Barcelona.
"I've always said I'd love to be able to help the club do well in any way that I can be useful. I'd love to be a technical director at some point.
"I don't know if that'll be at Barcelona or if it might work out differently.
"If the option is there, I'd love to contribute again in any way that I can because it's the club that I love and I'd love it to keep doing well, growing and remain one of the best in the world."
Messi was injured in Paris St Germain's 2-1 win over champion Lille on Friday, but coach Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful he will be available for this week's psg in champions league game at RB Leipzig.
