Messi announces desire to play for Newell's Old Boys

Lionel Messi could be headed stateside for a friendly against the United States in October. More

Messi is preparing for the World Cup in Russian Federation with Argentina as he bids to lead his country to their first success in the tournament since 1986.

The legendary Diego Maradona is still held in higher regards by every fan and this is down to one reason only; the World Cup.

SI TV is also now available on fuboTV.

Juventus star Paulo Dybala claims Lionel Messi is "the best player in the history of football" and training alongside him with the Argentina national team is "incredible".

Northern Ireland were unable to spoil Panama's World Cup send-off party as the hosts drew with another home nation ahead of facing England in Russian Federation next month.

At previous major tournaments, including the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Messi has suffered from burnout following a gruelling season at club level.

He continued: "I would swap a title with Barcelona for one with the national team".

Liverpool Sign £44m Fabinho From AS Monaco
The clubs agreed a transfer fee worth up to €50 million (£ 44m ), a source told ESPN FC. But the real significance of this signing is that it looks a major coup for the club.

Arsenal's official website quoted Wenger saying, 'The story of Cesc Fabregas is that Franny Cagiago and Steve Rowley brought the player here and we had to convince him.

Argentina has been allotted a place in a competitive Group D alongside the likes of Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria.

"Cristian is a player who has very special characteristics for communicating with Messi", he said. I think it was linked with Nike at the time and they wanted Pique to go to Man United.

Nevertheless, the victory will boost fans' hopes that Messi can lead two-time champions Argentina to glory in Russian Federation.

"We all go to Russian Federation for the same reason, the World Cup is the dream of us, of the country. We don't have an easy group".

Messi, who joined Barca as a 13-year-old, would have already won a World Cup if he defected to Spain as a teenager.

"The other day I was talking to a friend and he said to me: "Look, if you had stayed with Spain, you would be world champion", Messi said.
