Messi casts doubt over Barcelona future with latest remarks


Messi flourished through Barcelona's famous academy La Masia and has been at the club since he was a 13-year old.

Messi told TyC Sports: "If we do badly at the World Cup, we all have to disappear from the national team".

"I have come to understand that the season is long and that some periods are more important than others". I want them to grow up in a calm place, being able to enjoy life with security.

People get exhausted and want to see new faces and new things in the National Team.

Thankfully, any suggest interest won't be forthcoming again as Messi has now signed a new deal at Barcelona with his current having a huge buy-out clause.

The 30-year-old Barcelona player, won the prize for being the top scorer in Europe's leading leagues last season after netting 37 times for the club. It would seem like potentially the ideal time to return to Argentina and finish his career at Newell's, but clearly he has concerns.

But Messi believes he should be recalled in time for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"We went through a tough spell".

"But it is true that we have to improve if we want to be world champions". As we are today, we are not far from that although there are better teams than us such as Brazil, Germany, France and Spain. Let us know in the comments section below.

"Because we have been in the national team for many year, we have played several Copa America, previous World Cup".

Lionel Messi has defended Gonzalo Higuain, claiming the Juventus striker is one of the best in the world and deserves to be in the Argentina squad. I've done all I can.

Argentina have been drawn in Group D at the World Cup alongside Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria.
