Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi started dating Argentine super model Roccuzzo in 2008 and she moved in with her heart rob two years later and the couple already have two children, Thiago and Mateo.
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.”
The wedding is expected to be held in Messi’s hometown of Rosario in Argentina, where the pair first met when they were children through Messi’s close friend and Roccuzzo’s cousin Lucas Scaglia.
Messi is expected to invite the entire Barcelona and Argentina squads to the big day, while a number of ex-team-mates will be in attendance too with the marriage believed to be on June 24, the Argentina captain’s 30th birthday.
The cathedral in Rosario, Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary, is the most likely venue, while the reception and party will be held at Messi’s family home.
