Lionel Messi: I receive offers every summer to leave Barcelona

Lionel Messi says he receives offers every summer to leave Barcelona.

Messi made the admission after winning a sixth Ballon d'Or of his career last night in Paris.

He said, "Proposals, I have them all the time. Every year, I have the opportunity to sign elsewhere. Many clubs opened their doors, but they knew that my will was clear. They were just there in case, one day, I would have wanted to change air.

"Every year, I am probed to know my state of mind and if I want to leave.

"It does not matter the club. I received proposals from everywhere. But I never really thought about it because I did not intend to leave."
