In two days time Lionel Messi and Antonella Roccuzzo would be tying the knot in their hometown of Rosario.
The couple are already blessed with two son- Thiago and Mateo, and have been together since Messi was five-years-old.
The media in Argentina is awash with news of the big event and La Nacion has given us an idea of the Invited guests.
Leo and Antonella’s wedding is being compared to Diego Maradona and Claudia Villafane in 1989 where over 1200 guests were invited including former Italy prime minister Silvio Berlusconi.
But rather than 1200 guests, La Nacion say the guest list consists of 260 people. The guest list is filled with family, friends and Messi’s colleagues at Barcelona.
Invitations were handed out to every first team member. But it is believe some of them would not be able to make the trip due to their tight schedule and off-season engagements.
Former Coach Luis Enrique or any of his staffs were not invited and no member of the club’s hierarchy got an IV.
Luis Saurez, Gerard Pique and Cesc Fabregas have cleared up their schedule and would be available. All three players would be present with their respective partners/wives.
Argentine legend, Diego Maradona has not been invited. His relationship with Messi is not said to be bad, but the two are not regularly in contact.
The 1986 World Cup winner is currently in Cuba and is expected shortly in Russia to meet with president Vladimir Putin.
Also not invited is former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique, nor any of the coaching staff or hierarchy at the Camp Nou.
Messi is expected to hold another party in Barcelona later this year for those that couldn’t make it.
Over 150 journalists have also received accreditation for the Messi wedding. And, a screen outside the City Centre Hotel and Casino will stream the event to the public.
