Messi says he considered leaving Barcelona after tax problem

Messi also reiterated his wish to have Neymar back with the club, and that he believed the Brazil forward would have ended up playing for Real Madrid if he didn't join Barcelona.

It nearly forced Messi out of the club he joined in 2001 as a 13-year-old. "I felt that I was being mistreated and did not want to be here anymore. I want to thank the fans for the affection they showed me this weekend, but if nothing changed, we will have to sit down and talk about my situation again". "I have a contract for a couple more years, there is no better place to play than Barcelona, the best club in the world, but I want to play and not enjoy walking around the city and enjoying the sea", Rakitic said of his situation at Barcelona.

There would have been no shortage of suitors had he gone through with his intention but Messi accepts no-one actually considered he was serious.

"I had the door opened by many clubs but I never had an official offer because everyone knew of my previous desire to continue in Barcelona".

Messi added: "Today my idea and that of my family is to end here". I am delighted and my idea is to stay here - nothing has changed that at all. I thought the quality wouldn't quite be there. I have no problem with him. With the club, everything is always simple. It is increasingly clear that I will end my career here.

According to Alonso, Madrid started to adapt to Barcelona's tactics under Pep Guardiola and discovered the best way to contain Messi on the pitch.

"From my childhood I have dreamed of playing for Newell's because of what football means in Argentina, but sometimes one has to prioritise the family".

"I wouldn't like to break up the friendships that my children have made here, as happened to me when I was little".

Messi and Ronaldo were last seen laughing and smiling in each other's company at the Champions League draw in August.

"The defeat at Liverpool was the players' fault".

"If another coach comes, we will be with him".
