Barcelona President, Josep Maria Bartomeu, has claimed talisman Lionel Messi ‘wants to finish his career’ at Camp Nou.
Big changes have been made immediately after the season in Catalonia, including new coach Ronald Koeman and the exit of former sporting director Eric Abidal.
Inter were alerted by reports claiming Messi has informed Barcelona he wants to leave this summer, but the President said Argentine wants to remain.
“Messi wants to finish his career at Barcelona,” Bartomeu told Barca TV. “He has said it so many times.
“I also spoke with Koeman and he told me that Messi is the pillar of his project.”
