Lionel Messi considered leaving Barcelona after being targeted by Spanish tax authorities in the early 2010s.

Lionel Messi plans to end his career at Barcelona despite admitting he wanted to quit the club and the country in the wake of his tax bill row with the Spanish government.

"Not because I wanted to leave Barcelona, but because I wanted to leave Spain".

"We got worse and worse and it wasn't because of the coach".

The 32-year-old's current contract expires in 2021 and Messi believes extending his deal "will not be a problem".

"Today, my idea and that of my family is to finish my career here". "For how I am at the club, for what I feel, and for the family and the children and how settled we are in this city".

"Of course anything can happen but in principle, the idea is to stay here".

"From my childhood I have dreamed of playing for Newell's because of what football means in Argentina, but sometimes one has to prioritise the family".

"I did not say to throw a stick to the board or go against them, I said it because I do not know because I was not in the negotiations".

Messi was keen to be reunited with Neymar last summer but Barcelona were unable to agree a fee with PSG.

Real Madrid rivalry and El Clasico, touched on the most hard time of his career that made him want to leave Barcelona, picked his favorite goal and plenty more in a radio interview this week.

And Barcelona fans can rest easy knowing that, with his tax issues now a thing of the past, Messi said he wants to stay at the club for the rest of his playing days.

Barcelona did sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, despite him rejecting the Catalans the year before.

Meanwhile, Messi, who recently won the FIFA Best Male Player award for the 2018-19 season, is not targeting a record sixth Ballon d'Or, which would edge him ahead of Ronaldo in that regard.

"The first year when we wanted to sign Griezmann, I said he was one of the best and that the best are always welcome", Messi said.

Do you think Isco would be a good signing for Juventus? "So it's a lie".

He completed 90 minutes and failed to score in the three games in which Barca have dropped points in LaLiga this season, while he is without a Champions League goal and was an unused substitute for last weekend's 4-0 win over Sevilla.

"He's in great form and we need Lewy to be successful this season".

"I'm still a bit short but I'm feeling better", Messi said.
