Lionel Messi has decided to stay at Barcelona.

In the past few weeks, reports suggested that Barcelona captain will leave the club and join Premier League. Messi had reportedly decided to leave the Catalan giants after humiliating loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

And now in a recent interview with Goal, Messi has confirmed he wants to stay. He said:

“I wasn’t happy and I wanted to leave. I have not been allowed this in any way and I will stay at the club so as not to get into a legal dispute. The management of the club led by Bartomeu is a disaster.

“I’ll continue at Barcelona and my attitude won’t change, no matter how much I have wanted to go. I told the club, the president, that I wanted to go. I’ve been telling him all year.

“I thought my time in Barcelona was over, sadly – I always wanted to finish my career here.”
