Lionel Messi reveals that he has not considered playing in England as he plans to finish his career at Barcelona.

Lionel Messi has claimed that his love for Barcelona means that he will never play football in England.

The 24-year-old has been at the Catalan club since he was a child and admits that he would like to finish his career at the club.

Messi told The Sun: "I have never thought about life beyond Barcelona. My heart belongs to the club and I can never see the day arrive when I want to leave.

"I accept you never know what can happen in the future but if it's my decision and my decision alone then I would be happy to finish my playing career at the club.

"The Premier League is immensely exciting and when I get the opportunity I love to watch it on television. There is a great deal to admire about English football.

"But I could never see the day arrive when I would play in England. It's hard to look beyond my own club and it's not something I have ever thought about or considered."

Messi scored a brace during Barcelona's 2-1 victory over Levante on Saturday.
