Hat-trick hero Messi: I'll stay for as long as Barcelona want me

Lionel Messi has moved to end doubts about his future at Barcelona. Amid new contract talks, Messi struck a hat-trick in victory over Osasuna yesterday.

"As long as people want me to, I'll stay at Barcelona. My intention is to be here till I retire, as I am happy here," said Messi.

Messi became the club's all-time record goalscorer with the treble and added: "This is something very impressive. It's great to become a part of my club's history. Today I have set this record and I am very happy."
