Lucas Scaglia and Emmanuel Biancuchi, who both come from Messi's hometown of Rosario, have left Newell's Old Boys and are currently in Barcelona chasing contracts with the club's academy teams.

Interestingly, both youngsters asked for trials at Espanyol, but neither received any response. However, Messi was happy to tip off Barca's youth coaching staff about the pair.
