Barcelona Coach Xavi Hernandez believes that Lionel Messi will decide his future "next week," the Spanish icon said in an interview with Mundo Deportivo.

The Argentine star will become a free agent on June 30, and his father and agent Jorge Messi didn't provide any update regarding the future of his son.

He also refused the latest reports claiming that Messi signed with the Saudi club Al Hilal. 

Xavi highlighted that the Barca are trying to arrange the return of their greatest ever player Messi.

Therefore, he asserted "that next week he will make a decision and we must leave him alone".

The coach said: "In the end if we talk about Leo every day, every day, I think it doesn't help either. In the end he will decide next week and now there are 200 hypotheses. In the end he will decide his future and here he has the doors open, there is no more debate."
