Former Argentina footballer and Lionel Messi’s teammate Sergio Aguero recently might have leaked a private chat that contained information about Messi’s next club. The former Manchester City striker hinted that La Pulga might return to his boyhood Argentine club Newell in a recent interview.
“He is seriously considering the possibility of playing for Newell’s,” Aguero recently said, as cited by UOL.
It is being heard that the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner will not renew his contract with PSG in the upcoming summer. Meanwhile, there were rumours that the star footballer might return to Barcelona.

”Kun is Kun. He can’t keep quiet”, Rodriguez said.
“We will see. It is hard to talk about this because then a giant ball of rumours is made. Let’s wait and see what happens, we will not get ahead of the facts”, he further added.

“When you see a 35-year-old Benzema and 37-year-old Modric who invest so much in a game and you see Lionel Messi who is 30 per cent of what he was at Barça a few years ago. He walks; he’s a walker.”
