Lionel Messi cannot guarantee he will spend his career with Barcelona. The Argentine whiz saw good friend Ronaldinho forced to leave Barca last summer for AC Milan and said: "It is not impossible (I could leave). Look what happened to Ronnie.

"In the last year, he was not happy, and that's not because he wanted to leave."

For now, however, Messi is adamant: "I came here at 13 years of age and this club gave everything to me and my family. The affection of the fans is most important and I do not intend to go anywhere."
