Former Argentine star Sergio Aguero has opened up about a club that former colleague and close friend Lionel Messi is considering a move to.
Messi’s contract with his current team, Paris Saint-Germain, expires at the end of the current 2022-2023 season, after joining him in the summer of 2021 from Barcelona, noting that the Argentine star’s contract with the Paris side includes a clause on extending their association for an additional season if both parties agree.
“He (Messi) is seriously considering returning and playing for his former club Newell’s Old Boys in Argentina,” Aguero told UOL.
In a relevant context, Maxi Rodriguez, Messi and Aguero’s former Argentine teammate, ridiculed these claims, saying: “Aguero will remain the way he is. He can never be silent. Now it is difficult to talk about these things. wait to see what happens.”
These statements are causing more controversy about Messi’s fate due to the strong relationship and friendship he has with Aguero, who stayed with him during the last World Cup in Qatar, which was crowned by Argentina.
And French newspapers recently reported that Jorge Messi, Leo’s father and agent, met with the Parisian club’s management to discuss his new contract, but nothing has been agreed yet, so all possibilities remain open.
Other reports have also suggested Al-Hilal Saudi Arabia’s plans to sign Messi, as well as Barcelona’s desire to restore the services of their former star and historic goalscorer.
