Messi Vows To Stay At Camp Nou As Long As He Is Needed

Barcelona star, Lionel Messi, insists that he will stay at Barcelona for as long as he is wanted. coming after reports of his move to the Premier League.

There has been confusion of his future at Barcelona as contract talks have been on for a while longer than usual.

Barcelona's President, Josep Maria Bartomeu, said last week that he is not concerned about the prospect of failing to agree an extension to Messi's deal, which expires at the end of next season, although some reports in Spain have suggested that the 29-year-old is becoming frustrated with a lack of concrete discussions between the club and his representatives.

Such rumours have led to speculation that Messi could be sold at the end of the season, with clubs including Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea reportedly monitoring his situation.

However, when asked whether he would consider moving to England, Messi told Coach magazine:

I have always said that Barcelona has given me everything and I am here for as long as they want me to be.

When asked about his move to the Premier League, he said:

It is a very competitive league, last season showed that, so it makes it very difficult to predict, he said. Of course Pep is a very successful coach, he will be adjusting to the league, but I am sure that he will be successful.
