Barcelona have rejected claims that Lionel Messi is demanding a pay rise following Cristiano Ronaldo's new deal at Real Madrid.
Ronaldo signed a new five year deal at Real Madrid over the weekend and will be earning a reported £280k-a-week, making him the highest paid player in the history of football.
Reports in Spain suggested that following the deal, Messi, who shares a famous rivalry with the Portuguese footballer, immediately demanded a pay rise to match Ronaldo's wages.
The four-time Ballon d'Or winner only penned an extension in February but was apparently keen to renegotiate.
However, Barcelona president Sandro Rosell has announced that no such demands have been placed by Messi, dispelling rumours of his discontent.
Rosell continued to say that he believes Messi remains happy with the current terms of his contract and will not be making any pay rise demands in the near future.
"Does Ronaldo's renewal affect Messi's contract? Messi hasn't said anything to us," he told reporters.
"He's happy here and he's at the best club in the world. No news is good news."
The Barca president also confirmed that Andres Iniesta is likely to sign a contract extension in the near future. The playmaker's current deal ends in 2015 and Rosell is keen to get the player tied down for the long term.
He added: "Iniesta's renewal won't be a problem. The wish of both parties is to renew the contract."
