Lionel Messi admits Newell's Old Boys doubts


"Because we have been in the national team for many year, we have played several Copa America, previous World Cup".

"It'll be hard for some to stay on".

Messi flourished through Barcelona's famous academy La Masia and has been at the club since he was a 13-year old.

Barca had somehow managed to get to a stage where the five time Ballon d'Or victor was not far removed from being able to negotiate a free transfer away from the Camp Nou in January.

'I understand Masche. The best thing is to play and enjoy yourself, and he doesn't think he'll get minutes here'.

"I've said many times that my dream is to play at Newell's but I don't know what will happen", Messi told TYC Sports.

Furthermore, Manchester City, according to our source, were also willing to offer 30-year-old Messi a £88 million signing-on bonus.

Messi will lead the Argentina national side at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation next summer with the Albiceleste looking to go one better than they did in 2014 when they lost in the final to Germany.

He explained: 'Bench role?

"I realised that sometimes not playing is for the best". "It looks easier from the outside".

"Being on the bench is disgusting, ' 30-year-old Messi explained".

Last Friday, Argentina, Nigeria, Iceland and Croatia were drawn together in World Cup Group D.

Jorge Sampaoli's side nearly did not qualify for the tournament, but a Messi hat-trick in their final qualifier against Ecuador secured their spot in Russian Federation.
