Leo Messi has given an interview to an Argentinian radio station where he's spoken about many ongoing subjects at FC Barcelona, as well as the failed move for Neymar. 

"We still talk and we're in a group with Luis Suarez. We chat every now and again. The topic of his return is a complicated one. First, because it's difficult for him to leave there. Second, for the way he left (Barça). There are people at the club and season ticket holders who don't want him back. He's one of the best players in the world but I also understand the other way of thinking. It's complicated," admitted Messi.

Another player that Messi is missing this season is Cristiano Ronaldo. "It was good when he was in LaLiga at Real Madrid. He made the Clasicos more special and he added value to the Spanish league."

Unlike the Portuguese star who left for a new challenge with Juventus, Messi has no plans on abandoning his 'home'. "I told them that I didn't want a contract which forced him to stay because I don't want to be here if I don't feel happy. I want to work hard, play and not be here just because of my contract. I want to stay here for the rest of my life."
