"Messi Will Play For Barca For The Rest Of His Life"
Lionel Messi will play for FC Barcelona for the rest of his life according to the club's sporting director, Robert Fernandez.
The Argentine forward has been key to the Catalan giants success over the past few years, scoring a tremendous amount of goals and breaking a few records in the process.
Messi has been linked with moves away from the club, with Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City reportedly keen on the player, however the club's sporting director has ruled out a departure for the four-time Ballon d'Or winner.
"Messi will play for the club for the rest of his life," said Fernandez.
"He has many years of football left in him. Other people think not, but he's so intelligent positionally and knows where to be on the field at the right time.
"As people get older they lose things but he's smart enough to keep producing extraordinary performances. He has that gift."
Messi has had a quiet start to the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign, after failing to get on the score-sheet in the opening two games.
