Many believed the 32-year-old would look to leave the Catalan club after his spat with sporting director Eric Abidal, considering the clause in his contract that allows him to terminate his Barca deal before the start of every season.

The Argentine is able to leave the Blaugrana for free given he informs the club of his decision by the end of May each year, but in a recent interview, Messi insisted he has no plans to move on.

"I have said lots of times that my idea is to never leave Barcelona, and as long as the club wants it, there won’t ever be a problem," he told Mundo Deportivo.

"Many times, I’ve had the chance to leave the club, there have been lots of clubs interested, clubs prepared to pay the buyout clause, but it never occurred to me to leave and it doesn’t now either.

"(But) I have also said many times that I would like the club to be in good shape, for the fans to be happy with the team we have, for there to be a winning project and for us to continue being candidates to win trophies like we always were.

"I want to win another Champions League, I want to keep winning league titles."
