FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has lifted the lid on his childhood dream of playing football in his country of birth, Argentina, once again.
The Argentine has always insisted that if he is to one day leave the Catalan giants, it would be for Newell's Old Boys – the club he played for before moving to Spain as a youngster.
The 30-year-old has once again addressed his future, saying that although he is not sure he will ever leave the Blaugrana, he would like to realise his dream of playing for Newell's, even if only for a few games.
"It becomes more and more clear that Barcelona will be my only team in Europe," he said, according to Mundo Albiceleste.
"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.
"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 brothers, my friends... after that; circumstances in life took me elsewhere, but I still have that in mind."
Messi was in superb form all season for the Catalan giants in 2017/18, scoring 45 goals and creating a further 18 strikes in 54 games.
