Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has said that would remain with the Catalan club until the end of his career.

“It’s what I always dreamed and what I always wanted,” he said.

The Argentina international joined Barcelona at 13, and debuted at 17. And since then, has amassed a record of more than 500 goals for the club.

He has won the La Liga title eight times with the club, the Champions League four times, and Ballon d’Or world player of the year title five times.

Barcelona were second in La Liga last season, three points behind champions Real Madrid and lost 3-0 on aggregate in the Champions League quarter-finals to eventual beaten finalists Juventus.

Ex-Manager Luis Enrique announced in March that he would leave the club in the summer after three years in charge and his final match saw Barca capture the Copa del Rey trophy.

Messi scored the opening goal as they beat Alaves 3-0 to win the competition for a third successive season.
