Son of Barcelona star Messi signs for Newell's Old Boys - age 2 weeks!

The son of Barcelona star Lionel Messi has signed for Newell's Old Boys - at the age of two weeks!

Argentina outfit Newell's - where football god Messi played at youth level before joining Barcelona - have snapped up infant Thiago as a member.

Newell's will be hoping their decision to beat the competition early pays off by Messi's powers of soccer genius passing down through his genes to the little lad.

Baby Thiago, who was signed by his grandfather, is eight years younger than when his old man joined them in 1995.
