Sergio Aguero believes Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi will retire at Camp Nou as he “loves” the La Liga champions.
Messi’s future has dominated headlines following a public row with sporting director Eric Abidal prior to the 2019-20 season being suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner – contracted until 2021 – has cut a frustrated figure at times this term after issues on and off the field at the club.
But Manchester City forward and Argentina team-mate Aguero feels the 32-year-old will see out his career with Barca.
“Leo is a player who is already a symbol and legend of Barcelona, but things happen in football,” Aguero told El Chiringuito TV.
“Many players have changed for Leo and he stayed at Barcelona. He loves the club, he identifies with Barcelona, he is comfortable and happy.
“No matter how many things happen, he will continue. Unless something catastrophic happens.”
