Barcelona star Lionel Messi is set to marry his childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo next summer as reports state. The wedding is expected to take place in their native city of Rosario in Argentina.
The two met as children through Lucas Scaglia, Antonella’s footballer cousin and a close friend of Messi and it was from that moment the two fell in love.
La Nacion reporter Juan Pablo Varsky broke the news during his radio show, saying the ceremony would take place next year, while a relative told La Capital: ‘It’s true, there’ll be a wedding the middle of next year.’
“Messi and Roccuzzo will get married in 2017. The date will depend on Barcelona’s schedule of games and the fortunes of the Catalan side in the Champions League,” EFE reported.
