Lionel Messi loves Barcelona and will stay at the club “unless something catastrophic happens,” according to Argentina team-mate Sergio Aguero.

The Barca captain’s future has been the topic of some speculation this season with reports suggesting Messi is not completely happy at the Camp Nou.

Messi has a clause in his contract that allows him to walk away at the end of the season, but Aguero says he will stay with the Spanish champions.

“Leo is a player who is already a symbol and legend of Barcelona, but things happen in football,” Aguero told

“Many players have changed for Leo and he stayed at Barcelona. He loves the club, he identifies with Barcelona, he is comfortable and happy.

“No matter how many things happen, he will continue. Unless something catastrophic happens.”

Messi’s contract extension is believed to be one of Barca’s top priorities this summer. His current deal runs until 2021.
