Argentine town braces for Messi's superstar wedding

Wednesday 14th June 2017 07:00 EDT

Football superstar Lionel Messi's Argentine home town is preparing to host footballing and showbiz celebrities when he marries childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo this month in Latin America's wedding of the decade. Colombian popstar Shakira, wife of Messi's Barcelona teammate Gerard Pique, has said she hopes to attend. Media such as local Rosario newspaper La Capital also expect other current and former Barcelona stars such as Luis Suarez, Neymar, Cesc Fabregas and Xavi Hernandez to be among the invitees.

The Barcelona forward's agents confirmed that the couple will wed in Rosario on June 30, a week after Messi's 30th birthday. The guest list, venue and party details are the subject of speculation. Sources in the city's cathedral denied reports that Messi and Roccuzzo would have a religious wedding ceremony there.
