Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu has insisted that Lionel Messi is happy to stay at Barcelona and will stay with the club until at least the end of his contract in 2018.
Bartomeu said: “Messi has a contract until 2018, he is happy with the club and wants to win more titles.
“There is nothing to panic about in that regard. Messi is the central figure. The team is built around him.”
He added: “The whole footballing world knows that Barca don’t want to sell Messi. For me he is the best player in the world.”
Messi started on the bench as Barcelona lost to Real Sociedad at the weekend.
The defeat meant they remained second in the La Liga table, a point behind fierce rivals Real Madrid.
In November, Enrique insisted Messi was “delighted” to be at Barca after reports linked the Argentine with a move away from the Nou Camp.
Talk of a transfer has resurfaced in recent days, with rumours Messi could be interested in a move to English Premier League side Chelsea.
Catalan radio has claimed that the London club has contacted Messi’s father and agent Jorge.
Lionel Messi hasn’t made any comment about his rumoured transfer.
