Lionel Messi has revealed more information about his upcoming wedding, which will be held in his hometown in Argentina.

Pep: I'd like to enter Messi's brain

The Barcelona forward won the Copa Del Rey for the fifth time in his career last season, but the Catalan side finished second in La Liga behind Real Madrid and crashed out of the Champions League in the quarter-finals.

According to Sport, Messi will be capping off the campaign when he gets married on June 30, less than a week after his 30th birthday.

WHERE WILL MESSI'S WEDDING BE HELD?

The 29-year-old is getting married in Rosario, Santa Fe, where he grew up and played for his first football club, Newell’s Old Boys.

The exact location has not been disclosed, presumably to avoid hoards of fans bombarding his special day.

WHO WILL HE BE MARRYING?

Messi will be tying the knot with Antonella Roccuzzo, also from Rosario, who he has known since he was five years old.

They began going out in 2008 and have since had two sons: four-year-old Thiago and 21-month-old Mateo.

WHO HAS BEEN INVITED TO MESSI'S WEDDING?

As expected, the left-footer has invited all 21 of the Barca first team to his wedding, meaning stars such as Luis Suarez, Neymar, Ivan Rakitic and Sergio Busquets will descend on central Argentina for at least a few days, with former team-mate Xavi also expected to be there.

Sport also report that the entire backroom staff are on the guest list, including all kitmen, doctors, physiotherapists and masseurs, as well as player liaison officer Pepe Costa.

WHO WILL NOT BE AT MESSI'S WEDDING?

Despite being managed by him for three years, Messi has not invited Luis Enrique. He also did not invite any assistant coaches, Juan Carlos Unzue, Robert Moreno, Rafel Pol and Joaquin Valdes, or, most notably, any members of the board.

Andres Iniesta has already told Messi he will not be able to attend, and Gerard Pique may also not attend due to an ongoing feud between his partner, the Colombian pop star Shakira, and Messi’s wife-to-be.

The Argentine also opted not to invite anyone else from the footballing world, including Cristiano Ronaldo, or any of his former team-mates with the exception of Xavi.

WHAT GIFTS WILL THEY GET?

What does one buy someone who earned around £62 million last year? Apparently, the correct answer is nothing.

Instead of asking for material gifts, the couple are requesting donations to his charity, the Leo Messi Foundation, which supports children in health care, education, and sport.

Looks like there will be no new gravy boat in the Messi household.
