Maxi Rodriguez, a close friend of the Argentine superstar, talked about his friend’s plans for the future.
“Hopefully some day we will have the chance to see Messi play for Newell’s. I think that if it will happen, it will be after the 2018 World Cup in Russia,” said the former Atletico Madrid and Espanyol player.
Lionel Messi is very likely to join them sooner or later, as he said he would like to end his career there. This means we could see the superstar some more years in Europe. But is this too early for him to leave? His friend said: “I do not think it is an option before the World Cup”.
“When we heard about Messi’s comments saying that he would like to return to Newell’s one day, the club was revolutionised,” he said.
This means we just have to wait in order to find out if this is true or not.
