I never thought of leaving Barcelona: Messi
Barcelona: Barcelona star Lionel Messi has once again made it clear that he has never considered quitting Camp Nou for another major club.
The four-time Ballon d`Or winner joined the Catalan giant`s youth academy in 2000, and has won the Champions League three times and La Liga on six occasions since breaking through to the first team in 2003.
Speaking at a press conference in Qatar, the 25-year-old again stated that leaving the Blaugrana has not once crossed his mind.
"I never thought about playing anywhere else than this club," he told reporters.
Barcelona are on course to equal the record of 100 points in La Liga having clinched the title earlier in the Spring, but they suffered a humiliating 7-0 aggregate defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League - something which Messi believes will help to make his side stronger.
"Winning the league is very good though our goal is always to win everything," he added. "Bayern were the superior team this year, now we must prepare for next year."
