Lionel Messi explains he has no plan to leave Barcelona

Cristiano Ronaldo Portugal At club level, Ronaldo's ability to produce his best on the biggest stage is uncanny - never...

Messi said that Brazil is most likely to win the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, because they have really good players, a very steadfast defense and strikers who "kill you".

On Neymar, a close teammate from 2013 to 2017 before the Brazilian's shock departure to PSG, and his potential move to bitter rivals Real Madrid after just a sole season in Ligue 1, Messi admitted that the transition would be "terrible" because of all that "Ney" means to Barcelona. He won important titles here.

Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar of FC Barcelona celebrate with the trophy following the UEFA Champions League Final match between Juventus and FC Barcelona at the Olympiastadion on June 6, 2015 in Berlin, Germany.

"I feel good and fast, but when you're young you do it 500 times a game and today you select the games more". The fact that these things are spoken of about me, well, that's that.

"I compete to improve myself year after year, to surpass what I have done before".

European Union unveils 'statute' to protect Iran trade against U.S. sanctions
New US sanctions would be a significant blow for European companies that actively went to the Iranian market after 2015. The EU is planning to use a so-called "blocking statute" to keep US sanctions from impacting European companies.

Asked on what he still hopes to achieve, Messi responded: "Obviously winning the World Cup with the national team would be the best because nothing has been given to us".

Messi has scored 45 goals in all competitions this season, while Ronaldo has netted 43.

But the 26-year-old striker has sought to play down the talk of another move. I do not need change.

Five-times Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo sustained a "slight ankle sprain" after 17 minutes against Barcelona - moments after he levelled the scores at 1-1 - following a collision with Barca defender Gerard Pique and was replaced at the break.

"The Real Madrid squad completed their first training session of the week as preparations ahead of Saturday's La Liga encounter against Villarreal at the Estadio de la Cerámica (8:45pm CEST) got under way", the statement said.

"It's something they have", he said.
