Rivaldo claims exit of 'one-club man' Messi seems unlikely
- Sources linked the Argentine with a possible summer exit after the Abidal feud.
- Rivaldo believes 'one-club man' Messi is not going to leave us.
- If he joins another team, Rivaldo says, it won't be in Europe.
In his fresh interview with Betfair (h/t Diario Sport), Barcelona legend Rivaldo put down the recent rumours about Leo Messi's possible exit.
"I see him like Francesco Totti or Ceni, they are one-club men," said the former forward.
"Maybe he'd go to China or the MLS which would be an interesting move, financially speaking, but I don't see Messi playing for another side in the Champions League."
The Argentine has a clause in his contract that allows him to leave the Catalans in summer but it's unlikely that he will trigger it this year. Besides, Blaugrana are said to be in talks with Messi's representatives over a new contract at Camp Nou.
Earlier on, Leo said that he would like to play for his childhood club Newell's Young Boys before retiring. However, with his family settled in Catalonia, it seems unlikely that he'll decide to go back to Argentina.
