The story may still have a happy ending for Barcelona fans as Barcelona boss Luis Enrique insists Lionel Messi will remain at the Catalan giants for many years to come

 Barca boss Josep Maria Bartomeu claimed that he remains confident Messi will end his career at the Camp Nou despite having just 18 months left to run on his contract.

“I also imagine that Leo Messi will remain for many years at Barca,” said Enrique ahead of his side’s clash at home to Malaga on Saturday. It would be beautiful for a player that left his homeland at such a young age and with such hope that he could finish his career as undoubtedly the best player of all-time at the club that gave him the opportunity. “For me it would be the perfect story.”

Barca trail Real Madrid by two points, but only a first Real win in the Spanish capital’s derby over Atletico Madrid in La Liga for four seasons later on Saturday will prevent Barca finishing the weekend on top should they register a fifth straight league win.
