Lionel Messi admits that he wants to end his career at Barcelona.

Lionel Messi has revealed that he wants to end his career at Barcelona.

The Argentinian forward, 24, is expected to be named as the FIFA Ballon d'Or winner for the third consecutive year at a ceremony in Zurich on Monday.

"I'm at the best club in the world, no other team could fulfil me as much as Barcelona does; I hope to stay here until they get tired of me, which is hopefully never," he told Marca. "I grew up at La Masia and I am a man made at Barca.

"The coach [Pep Guardiola] knows the club better than any of us. He was a ball boy, player and now coach. He is very smart, knows what needs to be done at all times and how to treat each player. He is also an excellent motivator. I feel very comfortable with him."

Barcelona will look to cut Real Madrid's lead at the top of La Liga when they take on Espanyol in the Catalan derby on Sunday.
