Argentina veteran Mario Kempes believes Lionel Messi cannot manage a move away from Europe.
According to European rumors, the PSG superstar would return to his childhood club Newell’s Old Boys.
Messi joined PSG on a free transfer in the summer of 2021, signing a two-year contract with the French capital club after leaving Barcelona after 21 years.
Concerns have been raised concerning the 35-year-future old’s at PSG, as his contract expires at the conclusion of this season.
Messi was thought to be on the verge of signing a new contract extension with PSG, but recent rumors indicate that the former Barcelona star is increasingly inclined to leave the club.
A return to Barcelona has also been discussed, and a move to the American Major League Soccer or Saudi Arabia cannot be ruled out.
Kempes, on the other hand, believes that Messi should avoid returning to South America.
He told TNT Sports,
“I don’t know if [Messi] would withstand the pressure. He’s used to Europe; the people are different. But in Argentina, it would be crazy.”
