New Delhi: Football superstar Lionel Messi is all set to marry his long-time partner Antonella Roccuzzo next year, according to reports.
The Barcelona forward met Roccuzzo in their native Rosario in 1996 and have two children together, four-year-old Tiago and one-year-old Mateo.
"Messi and Roccuzzo will get married in 2017. The date will depend on Barcelona's schedule of games and the fortunes of the Catalan side in the Champions League," EFE reported.
It's reported that Messi used to write love letters to her as a teenager, but their relationship only materialized after the Argentina captain turned 21.
Reports also suggest that wedding is expected to take place in Rosario where they met as children through Lucas Scaglia, Antonella’s footballer cousin and a close friend of Messi.
And their big date is rumoured to be June 24, which happens to be Messi's birthday.
