Barcelona star Lionel Messi has revealed he wants to stay with the club for the rest of his career, ruling out a switch to the Premier League.

The Argentinian forward, considered by many to be the world’s greatest ever player, told Sky Sports: ‘The truth is my idea has been to always stay in Barcelona and see out the rest of my career here.

‘Like I always say, one doesn’t know what can happen in the future but if it were up to me to decide, I would stay at Barcelona for the rest of my career.’

The 24-year-old added that he has need seen football played so well as by Pep Guardiola’s side.

‘I didn’t see the other great teams that people say have existed throughout history,’ he said.

‘Mainly because of my age, I wasn’t old enough to have seen the great teams that we are compared with.

‘From what I have seen I think it (the current Barca side) is the best, but I can’t really compare (older great teams) as I don’t know enough about the others.’

Messi also said that he feels Guardiola is the best manager in the game.

‘Since Guardiola’s arrival, he has made the team play this way,’ he said.

‘When he arrived he made me play higher up, closer to the goal in order for me to score more goals which, until his arrival, I hadn’t done on a regular basis.

‘He made us prepare better in training and for games, making it seem that every game was a final.

‘He prepares everything with his vision when the games are played and everything he does shows he is the best coach in the world.’
