For all those people who keep challenging Lionel Messi to move to another club in order to show he can perform anywhere, the Barcelona star has decided to tell them a few things concerning this issue.
The soccer star has just re-affirmed his desire to finish his footballing career at Barcelona F.C., saying a move from the LaLiga champions would be very complicated.
The 31 year-old Barca talisman has a contract with his club until mid-2021, after having signed a new contract late last year.
Messi has very clearly indicated to all and sundry that his plan is to remain at Barca.
“The idea would be to stay at Barcelona,” Messi told Catalunya Radio on Monday.
“My family is very settled. Changes would be very big and complicated.”
According to the player, it is important for him to Messi to stay until the end of his contract, by which time he will be 34, and then decide on what to do next.
As far as he is concerned, there is no reason whatsoever to leave his boyhood club, no matter what other people are saying all over the place. The decision remains his to take and nobody is going to influence him in that regard.
“I have everything here.” I have been at Barcelona since I was 13 years old.”
“It’s the best team in the world, in one of the best cities in the world. My children were born in Catalonia and I don’t need to move elsewhere if I don’t have to.”
