LONDON - Barcelona forward Lionel Messi wants to spend the rest of his career with the European champions, who he says are one of the greatest club sides of all time.

"The truth is my idea has been to always stay in Barcelona and see out the rest of my career here," he told Sky Sportsyesterday.

"If it were up to me, I would stay at Barcelona for the rest of my career."

The 24-year-old Messi added that he had never seen a team play better football than the present Barcelona side.

"I didn't see the other great teams that people say have existed throughout history," he said.

Messi also praised coach Pep Guardiola for Barcelona's success.

"Since Guardiola's arrival, he has made the team play this way. When he arrived he made me play higher up, closer to the goal in order for me to score more goals which, until his arrival, I hadn't done regularly."
