Jordi Alba has been talking about his future and admits he wants to stay at Barcelona for the rest of his career.

The left-back is currently on international duty with Spain preparing for the 2020 Euros and made it clear he has no desire whatsoever to leave the Camp Nou.

“I have three years left on my contract and I see myself able to fulfill them. The club’s decision is there and my intention is to stay at Barcelona for life.”

Alba also spoke about the futures of both captain Lionel Messi and coach Ronald Koeman who are both now expected to stay at the Camp Nou.

Speculation suggests Messi will sign a two-year contract extension, while Barca could announce on Thursday that Koeman will see out his contract.

Here’s what Alba thinks of it all:

“I hope that Messi’s future will be resolved as soon as possible,” he said. “The coach has a contract with Barcelona, ​​he has had a great season, then it is the president’s decision and we will accept it.”

Alba and Spain kick off preparations for the Euros on Friday with a friendly against Portugal before taking on Lithuania four days later. Spain’s first match of the tournament is against Sweden on June 14.
