The Argentine declared: "I want to stay a long time with Barcelona. You never know what can happen, but that is my wish. I owe a lot to Barcelona and for me to stay here forever would be one way to repay them."
Messi also admitted: "I do not think there is another like Maradona. Hopefully, Argentina can produce many great players, but to find one like Diego will be very difficult.
"The best Argentine playing in Spain today is El Kun (Atletico Madrid's Sergio Aguero)."
The midfield whiz also hinted at controversy with Barca next season, when admitting: "I would love to go to the Olympics. I want to win the three competitions I'm playing for with Barca this season and then go to Beijing."
