Messi could have played for Real Madrid: Former agent

When you see players in defence or struggling because they are not fast or unable to control, because Messi has an unbelievable left foot but the right foot is also good.

So, for the constant joy he has and continues to give us on the pitch, we wish LIONEL MESSI A HAPPY AND MEMORABLE 30 BIRTHDAY.

The uncertainty will only grow the longer Messi's contract situation remains unresolved but Garcia - who emerged from Barcelona's youth system in 1998 before returning in 2003 - can not see him playing for another club aside from boyhood side Newell's Old Boys.

1- His full name is Luis Lionel Andres Messi.

The list of honours, records and awards is endless but includes a club record 507 goals, eight Spanish titles, four Champions League and five Ballons d'Or.

Garcia is in Australia working for Optus during their Confederations Cup coverage and he revealed that he can not see Messi leaving the Nou Camp. He said: "I would like to finish my career at Barcelona so we'll see. It's what I've always wanted what I've always dreamed of and what I've always said I'd do". It does not matter if you are a Barcelona fan or not, if you like to watch football then you just cannot "not" like him. "Football has given him a lot, as much as he has given the sport and to win a World Cup, in my opinion, wouldn't bring himself anything else".

The Argentinian superstar broke into the Barcelona team as a teenager - and 13 years since his debut, his statistics show he more than delivered on the early promise he showed. "But I was about to live in Madrid", Gaggioli was quoted as saying by ESPNFC on Saturday.

Gaggioli revealed to Globoesporte: "Due to life circumstances, I went to live in Barcelona and I brought him to Barca for a trial". I don't see him playing for another club.
