Lionel Messi's next club 'revealed' after Sergio Aguero let slip private chat he had with PSG superstar | The Sun
SERGIO AGUERO has “revealed” his close pal Lionel’s Messi’s next club as he let slip a private conversation he had with the legend.
The World Cup winner has been in sensational form for the Ligue 1 leaders this season with 16 goals and 14 assists in his 27 appearances, but his deal in the French capital runs out this summer.
Although PSG are desperate to get him to extend his stay at the Parc des Princes.
And with no signs of Messi slowing down despite turning 36 at the end of the campaign, PSG want him to sign an extension.
Talks over a new deal were reportedly set to take place this month.
However, Messi's former club Barcelona and David Beckham’s MLS side Inter Miami are also keen to sign him.

But now another team appears to have entered the race – and it is the South American’s boyhood team Newell’s Old Boys.
That is according to Messi’s close friend and Manchester City’s record goalscorer Aguero.
In an interview with UOL, Aguero said: “He is seriously considering the possibility of playing for Newell's.”
Messi spent five years in Newell’s academy and was even a ball boy for them prior to joining Barcelona as a schoolboy in 2000.

But former Liverpool ace Maxi Rodriguez was quick to shoot down those claims, saying: “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.”
Messi is apparently set to feature in a testimonial for Rodriguez with Newell’s later this year which reports in his homeland claim “could be seen as a trial” as they attempt to get him to come home.
The friendship between Aguero and Messi started nearly 20 years ago and the pair regularly roomed together while on international duty with Argentina.
