'Hi Leo, are you there?' - Newell's Old Boys urge Messi 'risk' as Barcelona superstar hits free agency


An Argentine icon has stated in the past that he would like to return to his roots at some stage and is no longer under contract at Camp Nou

Newell's Old Boys have wasted little time in making their play for Lionel Messi, with a favourite son of the Argentine outfit hitting free agency in Barcelona.

A six-time Ballon d'Or winner has seen his contract expire at Camp Nou, meaning that he could enter into discussions regarding a move away from Catalunya.

Fresh terms are still expected to be agreed at some stage, but Newell's have made it clear that doors would be swung open in Rosario if a familiar face wanted to take a "risk" and return to his roots.
