Lionel Messi has kept everyone in the dark over where his future lies
The forward has revealed that he wants to leave Barcelona for the first time in 19 years this summer
Argentina president Fernandez has now told the 33-year-old to re-join Newell’s Old Boys
Lionel Messi’s future at Barcelona remains unclear after handing the Spanish League giants his transfer request earlier this month.
The 33-year-old expressed displeasure towards a number of anomalies at the Camp Nou and most recently was his conversation with new boss Ronald Koeman.
He has also refused to return to the club’s training camp for his compulsory medical check up ahead of the coming season.
The attacker is now open to fresh a challenge away from the Catalan club for the first time in about two decades with a number of teams lining up for his services.
Manchester City and Inter Milan are in pole position to land the six-time Ballon d’Or winner, Man United, Chelsea, and Paris Saint Germain are also in the race.
His boyhood club Newell’s Old Boys have equally shown interest in having him back once he quits his current La Liga club.
Messi was with the Argentine outfit from 1993 to 2000 before moving to Barcelona to join the famous La Masia academy.
Meanwhile, Argentina president Alberto Fernandez has urged Messi to come home and re-join Newell’s Old Boys as reported by Sport Bible quoting TV channel C5N.
