He’s widely considered to be the best player ever – and Diego Maradona is now planning a sensational return to football.
The 53-year-old is said to be in talks with minnows Deportivo Riestra, who play in the fifth tier of Argentinean football, over a deal to join them until the end of the season.
Maradona was put in touch with Riestra by one of his advisers who owns shares in the club, and he is now tipped to make his debut next month.
The 1986 World Cup winner, known simply as ‘God’ in his homeland, has struggled with his weight in recent years but is said to be in good enough shape to start a match on March 23.
