Brasilia, Oct 27 (Prensa Latina) Argentinean soccer star Lionel Messi is planning on playing for the club Newell's Old Boys in 2023, after the Qatar World Cup, Brazilian media has revealed.
 
The columnist Tales Torraga indicates in the UOL news portal that this information came from Emili Rousaud, former vice president of the Barcelona club, in an interview with the Argentinean radio Villa Trinidad and confirmed by the player's environment.

Torraga assures that 'the source is good: in November 2018 we published that the star, retired from the national team, would return in March 2019. Said and done.'

He pointed out that Messi's career plan is to retire at 36 or 37, the age at which he would have played for Newell's in the city of Rosario, where he was born. The player is now 33-years-old and has a contract with the Barcelona club of Spain until June 2021.

Without anything inspiring, he extended this link only for another season, until the end of 2022, when he would play his fifth and last World Cup, the journalist added.

Messi has lived in Catalonia since 2000 and would maintain, with his transfer to Newell's, the Argentinean custom of ending his career wearing the shirt of his eternal sympathy.

In that long list appear names such as Diego Armando Maradona and Carlos Tevez (for Boca), Pablo Aimar and Javier Saviola (River), Juan Sebatian Veron (Students), Juan Roman Riquelme (Argentinos Juniors), Diego Milito (Racing) and Pablo Daniel Osvaldo (Banfield).
