Argentine town braces for Messi's wedding

47 minutes in 24 months- Thiago Silva set for first Brazil start in two years

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has said he wants to retire at the Spanish giants with reports saying that the Argentine forward has agreed on a new long-term deal.

Messi has been linked with Premier League sides Chelsea and Manchester City during protracted talks with Barca, as the five-time Ballon d'Or victor have delayed accepting a new contract at Nou Camp.

Messi's old Barca team-mate Xavi - who will reunite with the Argentinian maestro at the ceremony - decided against inviting any management to his own wedding when he married Nuria Cunillera in 2013.

Messi, now away on global duty with Argentina, added: "We would have liked to have achieved more".

The 29-year-old is getting married in Rosario, Santa Fe, where he grew up and played for his first football club, Newell's Old Boys.

The radio station says that the deal is already done but will be announced after 30 June due to fiscal reasons.




Barcelona and Lionel Messi are coming off a season this past year that they surely would love to forget, but early in the La Liga offseason, there is apparently some good news for both sides.

According to the programme EL Club de la Mitjanit on Catalan based TV3 via AS, Messi will earn €30m-a-year (£26.4m, $33.7m) after taxes.

The former Athletic Bilbao chief must ensure the player who scored a staggering 53 goals in all competitions last season, per WhoScored.com, has the right framework around him.

They lost 0-3 on aggregate in the Champions League quarter-finals to eventual beaten finalists Juventus.

"You can not say that they "only" won the Copa del Rey", the Catalan added.
