Argentine football star Lionel Messi said yesterday he could not play for any team other than Barcelona, where he has been since the age of 13.

“I cannot play with any team other than Barcelona,” he told reporters in Qatar, where he took part in a charity event. But he added in answering a question about a possible transfer that he “did not know what the future hides.”

Messi joined Barcelona when he was still just 13 and climbed through the Catalans’ ranks, making his first team debut at just 17.
