Pep Guardiola has denied reports Manchester City offered Lionel Messi a €100million bonus to sign with the Premier League club, insisting the Argentina superstar was never going to leave Barcelona.

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.

By the time that contract expires, Messi will be 34 years old and potentially considering retirement. "We deserved to win them, despite not playing that well we still had the best chances, both in the World Cup and Copa America", he said. I want them to grow up in a calm place, being able to enjoy life with security.

Messi's side will kick off their World Cup campaign against Iceland on June 16, before facing Croatia and Nigeria in their other group stage fixtures. But it's true that we have to improve if we aspire to be world champions.

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

Messi will lead the Argentina national side at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation next summer with the Albiceleste looking to go one better than they did in 2014 when they lost in the final to Germany.

Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, has sensationally declared that he and his Argentina teammates will "have to disappear" if they fail to take their last chance of winning the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. "It hurts not to be a champion".

They reached the final at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but suffered defeat to Germany.
