Xavi Says Messi Should Stay His Entire Career at Barcelona

Share

This season Juventus fell 3-0 in Barcelona and Valverde expects the Italian side to come out firing on all cylinders after their Serie A title defence took a knock with a 3-2 defeat at Sampdoria. "Then we will see if we go into the market or not depending on our situation and the possibilities that we have [to bolster the squad]", the Barcelona boss said.

"I don't know if I'll be at Juventus for life and I can't even say that this will not be my a year ago in Turin", he admitted to France Football.

Ex-Barcelona icon Xavi has claimed that Lionel Messi should stay at the Camp Nou until he retires, after it has been strongly rumoured that the Argentine legend has already put pen-to-paper and signed a contract extension with the club.

Alvaro Morata , Marcos Alonso, and Eden Hazard (2) all found the net as the Blues proved to be the final nail in Tony Pulis' coffin.

"We want to show that we learnt our lesson from the last time that we played away here", said Rakitic.

If the La Masia graduate doesn't pen a new deal by the end of December, he will be open to hold talks with any club regarding a pre-contract agreement, which could lead to him joining the club for free next summer.

Overall, Messi has scored 16 goals in 18 matches this season, and has played the full 90 in every match, barring the October 24 Copa del Rey match against Real Murcia for which he was suspended. His team-mate Rakatic wants him to continue playing at Barcelona while calling Messi 'a part of Barcelona's badge'. "I have confidence in the president and in Leo and I know he wants to be with us". "I think he travelled here [to Italy] with us and we're not going to think too much further beyond that".
