Thiago, who was born in 2012, is the eldest of the FC Barcelona captain's three sons, with brothers Mateo and Ciro being born in 2015 and 2018, respectively.

As they grow older, they are becoming more interested in football, as their famous father told Mundo Deportivo in an exclusive interview earlier this year.

"The two older ones are showing more dedication to the ball, Thiago and Mateo are the ones that understand the most," he said.

"They come to the pitch and training sessions, and are usually close to me."

Messi also revealed which players Thiago cannot stop talking about, naming three of his current teammates as well longstanding rival Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

"He talks a lot about Luis (Suarez), with whom we have the best relationship, about (Antoine) Griezmann and Arturo (Vidal) since the first day because of his hair and all that," the 32-year-old explained.

"Also about people from outside of Spain, (Kylian) Mbappe, Cristiano (Ronaldo), Neymar. Yeah, Thiago knows them all, he asks questions and likes them a lot."
