ANGEL DI MARIA is the only player with links to Real Madrid who has been invited to Lionel Messi’s wedding.
Barcelona’s superstar is finally set to tie the knot with long-term partner Antonella Roccuzzo.
The pair already have two children together and have known each other since the age of five.
The wedding is being billed as the event of 2017 and everyone has been clamouring to get an invitation to the ceremony in Argentina.
However, Messi has carefully picked his guests and has dealt a major snub to Barca’s rivals Real Madrid by not inviting a single player in the current squad – including Cristiano Ronaldo.
The only ex-Madrista to be asked along is national teammate and Paris Saint-Germain ace Di Maria, reports La Nacion.
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will be going to the event, as will Nou Camp legend Ronaldinho.
Chelsea playmaker Cesc Fabregas and Barca pal Luis Suarez have been invited, as well as Gerard Pique and popstar partner Shakira.
However, Andres Iniesta will not be present due to the birth of his third child.
Surprisingly, there is no invite for ex-Barca boss Luis Enrique or any of his coaching team.
Diego Maradona has also been snubbed, although the Argentine legend will be quick to point out he had over 1,200 guests at his 1987 wedding to Claudia Villafane, compared to Messi’s 260.
