Barcelona star Lionel Messi has reiterated his desire to finish his career with boyhood club Newell's Old Boys.

Buenos Aires: Lionel Messi has given his backing to out-of-favour Argentina team mate Gonzalo Higuain and said the Juventus forward should be recalled to the national side in time for next year's World Cup finals.

Now I use the word staggering because the good folk of the English news source, The Mirror, are reporting that the current Premier League leaders offered our Argentine superstar a weekly wage of £850,000.

He also insisted he is happy with Valverde's rotation policy.

"Of course, it is tough being a sub, but I have come to understand it is for the best".

"I have a family and my children come first, and then me".

People get exhausted and want to see new faces and new things in the National Team.

By the time that contract expires, Messi will be 34 years old and potentially considering retirement. I think that we have time to improve in these games and before the World Cup. when we'll have a month to put everything in order before the start.

"If we do badly at the World Cup, we all have to disappear from the national team".

Messi's side will kick off their World Cup campaign against Iceland on June 16, before facing Croatia and Nigeria in their other group stage fixtures.

"But it's true that we need to improve if we want to be world champions".

"The bitterness we feel is because we know what's coming if things don't go well for us". As we are today, we are not far from that although there are better teams than us such as Brazil, Germany, France and Spain.
