Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho hopes Lionel Messi “never leaves” Barcelona.

“Messi is every season the same story, every season he is going to leave and he never leaves,” he said.

“Honestly, I hope he never leaves because I think he belongs to Barcelona, I think Barcelona belongs to him. I think the natural tendency and the beautiful thing would be for him to start and to finish his career at Barcelona.

“For Man Utd, not for sure, and I think he will stay in Barcelona. That’s just a personal opinion.”
