Who is lionel messi dating
However, they were never officially in a relationship while Messi was living in Rosario, and it's unclear when things actually began.
Messi has never spoken in depth about the subject; he didn't speak about it at all until 2009, when as a 21-year-old he confirmed in an interview with Catalan channel TV3 that he had a girlfriend.
Luis Suarez and Neymar will be there, though, and Gerard Pique and partner Shakira are also expected to be present, although it's not been confirmed.
There had been doubts whether they would go and speculation about Shakira's relationship with Roccuzzo, but the popular singer said recently she would be there if she could.
Background story Lucas Scaglia was one of Messi's teammates while he was still living in Rosario and playing for Newell's Old Boys.
Their relationship extended off the pitch, too: as kids, they spent a lot of time together.
According to Madrid-based Diario AS, a big screen will be erected outside the venue so fans can watch the ceremony from a safe distance.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Andre Gomes and Denis Suarez have international commitments, while others have other reasons for not attending.
Andres Iniesta, for example, excused himself following the recent birth of his third child.
As well as the couple's respective friends and families, there will of course be a number of the world's best footballers among the 260 invited guests.
Every single member of Barca's first-team squad received an invite, though not all will be able to make it.
