Messi’s name has been on the lips of many football fans in the past few days over a recent talk of wanting to leave Barcelona.
A decision that was taken after Barcelona lost 8-2 to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League quarter final.
Messi has been an integral figure at Barcelona – winning four Champions League trophies, six Ballon d’or trophies and a ten time La Liga champion.
