Nou Camp attacker makes it perfectly clear that a Parc des Princes move is not on the cards.
Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi claims he cannot even imagine ever leaving the Catalan club.
The likes of Manchester City and Paris St Germain theoretically have the funds to force the hand of Barcelona but the player himself is not prepared to contemplate a transfer.
Messi told France Football: “Leaving Barca to join a club like PSG? I have the best team-mates in the world. Each year we are fighting for titles.
“Barcelona is a wonderful city too. Barca is the club where I have grown. Frankly, I couldn’t imagine myself leaving.”

So that’s the end of that then.
There had been mere inklings of wild speculation that PSG would look to make a mammoth offer to Barcelona for star player Lionel Messi, and offer that would almost certainly be consigned to the nearest waste paper bin. The Argentine attacker clearly felt the need to quash such talk.
Having reached a combined total of 300 goals for club and country 25 year old Messi has reached yet another milestone in a career littered with achievements and it would be frankly odd to imagine the goal machine wearing any other club shirt than a Barcelona one.
