"Barca will be my only team in Europe" - Messi
Updated Monday 28 May 2018 18:8
Barcelona star Lionel Messi has reiterated that Barcelona will be the only European team he will play for, although he is still hoping to head home to Newell’s Old Boys at some stage.
The Argentine striker began the journey in the youth system of the club based in his native Rosario, and clearly still has fond memories of the club.
He was, however, to head for Europe at the age of 13 and has not looked back after graduating out of the famed La Masia academy system to become a five-time Ballon d’Or winner and all-time great.
The 30-year-old forward told El Trece on his future plans: "It becomes more and more clear that Barcelona will be my only team in Europe.
"After that, I have always said that I want to play football in Argentina but I don’t know if it will happen. I have it in mind."
If Messi is to head home at some stage, then Newell’s will be his destination. He added: "I’d like to live it, be it for six months or a few matches, but I don’t know. One never knows.
"My dream was to play for Newell’s as a kid, going to the matches with my dad, my brother, my friends."
