The father of Lionel Messi has said it would take a ‘catastrophe’ for his son to leave Barcelona and he fully expects him to stay at the Nou Camp for the rest of his career, Talk Sport reports.
The 25-year-old has achieved great things with the Catalan club already in his career and has won a huge array of trophies.
In 2012, he has broken Gerd Muller’s record for goals scored in a calendar year as he has now netted 86 times.
The Argentina international has everything going for him at Barcelona – a club that challenge for big trophies every year, a set of supporters that worship him and of course he has a great love for the Nou Camp.
His father said: “Only a catastrophe would see him leave Barcelona. It’s impossible to think Leo can go and play in another team.
“He has always said he intends to end his career with this shirt.”
Many say they would love to see Messi in the English Premier League, but he does not seem to be a player driven by money – so it is difficult to see any offer luring him away from Barcelona.
Never say never in football, but it does look as though the player widely regarded as the best in the world will remain in La Liga for a long time to come.
