Barcelona legend Lionel Messi has named the one team he would be prepared to leave the Catalan giants for in the near future.
But unfortunately for Manchester City fans, it seems the Argentine has no intention of moving to the Premier League.
Messi started his career all the way back in 1994, when he was only six years old, playing for Rosario outfit Newell’s Old Boys.
It was at the club he was spotted by Barcelona scouts before he would join the world-famous La Masia academy and go on to change the landscape of football.
Messi and his family moved to Spain to help the young prodigy forge his career back in 2001, but the Argentine has always been a lifelong fan of Newell’s Old Boys.
And it seems that the now 30-year-old would like to finish his career in fairytale terms, by re-joining the club he left all those years ago.
“I still have to play in Newell’s and that is my dream,” Messi told Ole. “But, as I was saying recently, I do not know what will happen a few years from now or how I will be to come back.
“I would love it and I always said it but I hope I can continue at this level to get back to Newell’s because it’s what I dreamed since I was little.”
