They could have formally approached him in the new year, had he not signed the contract extension, with his previous deal expiring in the summer of 2018.

By the time that contract expires, Messi will be 34 years old and potentially considering retirement.

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has explained how he feels about being a substitute on occasion at the Catalan club.

"But it is true that we have to improve if we want to be world champions".

Lionel Messi has hinted that he may retire from worldwide football if he and his Argentina team-mates have an unsuccessful 2018 World Cup. "Right now we're not far off, but there are better sides than us such as Brazil, Germany, France and Spain".

"We went through a tough spell. People want results and, if they don't get results, they want new faces".

Lionel Messi has once again said that his ambition is to end his playing days with his boyhood club Newell's Old Boys, but admitted that there is some doubt as to whether it will come to pass.

Messi, speaking to TyC Sports, said: "If we do badly at the World Cup, we all have to disappear from the national team".

He subsequently reversed his decision and will be the linchpin of a talented Argentina side as they aim to win the World Cup next year.
