With Lionel Messi entering the final years of his career, the FC Barcelona superstar has seemingly dropped another hint about his future with the LaLiga giants.
Since making his professional debut in 2004, Messi has spent his entire career with Barcelona, and is the club's all-time leading goalscorer with 606 goals.
Now, at the age of 32, the Argentina international is entering the final years of his playing career and has been linked with an exit from Barca, with a move to the MLS or a return to his homeland said to be on the cards.
In a recent interview with TyC Sports, and as reported by Sport, Messi appeared to drop another hint about what the future holds for him.
"I always said I don't want to leave Barcelona, I don't have the idea of leaving," the mercurial forward said.
"I have the dream of being able to play at Newell's in Argentine football, but I don't know if realistically it will happen, because I have a family that comes before my desire.
"It's a reality I dreamed of since I was little but I have a family, I have three children, I live in a place that gave me everything and where I am calm, and I can give my kids a spectacular future.
"We think much more about that than my desire to play in Argentine football.
"I'll try to convince the family, because now you have to convince the kids too. Thiago is big now, he's got his friends and he doesn't like it at all when we go to Argentina for a month, he wants to be with his friends and it's all harder."
