Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, says there is no chance Lionel Messi will ever be available for a transfer and hopes the Argentina captain finishes his career at Barcelona.Recent reports from Spain claimed Messi was hesitant to renew his contract at Camp Nou, which will expire in 2018.Manchester City are understood to be keeping a close eye on the 29-year-old, while United could also be interested. But Mourinho says Messi might never play in the Premier League.“It is the same story with Messi every season. The papers always claim he is leaving, but it never happens in the end,” Mourinho said at a news conference on Wednesday.“Honestly, I hope he never leaves because he belongs to Barcelona and Barcelona belong to him.“The natural thing and beautiful thing would be for him to stay and finish his career at Barcelona.“I think he will be staying at Barcelona, but that is just a personal opinion.
