Barcelona's Response To Signing Messi Off To French Club, PSG..
Barcelona FC has put their foot down on the letting Messi leave the club.
They have made it clear that they would do anything to retain the very valuable player.
"Lionel Messi is not for sale".
That was the defiant message from Barcelona's new president, who is adamant that the club's all-time leading goalscorer is going nowhere.
This statement was triggered by reports that French club, Paris St Germain, want to sign the Argentine.
Josep Maria Bartomeu will sit down with the four-time World Player of the Year to write up a new contract which will see him remain as most highly-paid at the Camp Nou.
"We want to sit down, without any rush, with Leo's father - it's not something that's happening tomorrow.
"we have plenty of time, but we will do what we have to to ensure he's the best paid player," said Josep Maria Bartomeu, who assumed control at Barca after Sandro Rosell's resignation last week.
