Barcelona forward Lionel Messi dodged questions about his future as he picked up the European Golden Shoe award in a ceremony in Spain.

The Argentine was awarded the prize for the fourth time in his glittering career after notching 37 goals last term.

However, rumours about Messi’s future overclouded the ceremony following Ernesto Valverde’s decision to drop the Argentine from his starting XI for a clash against Juventus.

Though Messi was officially being ‘rested’, the 30-year-old is said to be furious at the decision and it’s raised question marks about his future with the Catalans.
