Football star will marry partner in July, 2017
Leo Messi and his partner will tie the knot in the coming year, according to reports on several media channels.
Report of the forthcoming wedding first came from Pablo Varsky, a prominent Argentine reporter. Spanish news agency, EFE then reported the same thing.
Both reports say Messi, 29, and Roccuzzo, 28, will have a ceremony sometime before September 2017 depending on Barcelona's summer tour.
According to Mr. Varsky, "I learned by chance, next year there will be a big celebration. I don't have a clear date but it's in Rosario," he said.
"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," reports EFE.
The couple met in their native Rosario in 1996 and have two children together, Tiago  and Mateo .
They had been expected to marry earlier in 2016, but that did not happen due to a personal decision of the couple.
