No, he start at Newell's Old Boys since 1995 as a youth for like 5 years until he sign a professional contract with Barca in 2004, but were at the club since 2000


Well this is going to make some Newell's fans really excited.
By the way what kind of name for a team is Newell's Old Boys? That doesn't even sound Argentinian.
