Because of his impending contract expiration and apparent confirmation from his pal Sergio Aguero, Messi may depart Paris Saint-Germain at the conclusion of the current campaign.

Messi’s current contract is slated to expire at the end of the current season, but Paris Saint-Germain and Messi have not yet reached an agreement on a new one.

If he was to depart the French capital in the summer, he has previously been connected with a transfer to MLS team Inter Miami as well as a potential reunion with former club Barcelona.

Aguero has now suggested that Messi’s first club Newell’s Old Boys, where he excelled in the academy before moving on to Barca, may be his next stop.

The former Manchester City star explained to UOL: “He is seriously considering the possibility of playing for Newell’s.”

Maxi Rodríguez, a former Liverpool winger, was compelled to intervene as a result of Aguero’s slip-up and add: “Kun is Kun. He can’t keep quiet. 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.”

Later this year, when a game is planned to honor Rodriguez’s three stints with the club, it is rumored that Messi would take the field for Rodriguez’s Newell’s testimonial.

According to rumors in Argentina, the club sees Messi’s participation in the testimonial as a temporary audition before making a decision to re-sign him after his contract with PSG expires.

The World Cup champion spent five years in Newell’s academy and worked as a ball boy for the team before joining Barcelona’s renowned La Masia youth program.

Lionel Messi At PSG

Messi joined Paris Saint-Germain on August 10th 2021. He agreed to a two-year contract that runs through June 2023 with a one-year option.

Messi selected the number 30 for his team, the same number he wore for Barcelona when he made his senior debut as a teenager.

On August 29, Messi made his professional debut for the team by coming in as a substitute in the second half of a 2-0 Ligue 1 victory away at Reims.

On September 15, in the team’s away tie against Club Brugge that ended in a score of 1-1, he got his first start and Champions League debut.

Messi tested positive for COVID-19 on January 2, 2022, according to PSG, missing two league games and one cup match as a result.

He made his league comeback on January 23 against Reims, where he replaced another player in the second half and contributed to PSG’s third goal in a 4-0 home triumph.

Although struggling in France during his first season with the club, Messi has been excellent for PSG this season both before and after his successful World Cup performance.

The 35-year-old has made 27 appearances this season and already surpassed his goal and assist total from the entire previous campaign with 16 goals and 14 assists.
