Barcelona and Argentina forward Lionel Messi is not going to be sold by his club, according to BBC Sport

Big spending French champions PSG are rumoured to be planning a bid for the four-time Ballon d'Or winner, but they would be waisting their time. That is, according to new president Josep Maria Bartomeu who said: "The club will sit down and negotiate a new contract."

"We will do what we can to ensure he is the best paid player." 

His goalscoring form has dropped since last season, but even so, the stats are remarkable. He has provided 36 assists in 20 games and scored 18 goals so far this campaign, which sees Barca sitting atop of La Liga on goal difference.

Messi suffered a hamstring injury in September which all but ended any chance of him once again pipping Cristiano Ronaldo to the Ballon d'Or, with the Real Madrid star picking up the award for the second time in his career.

Recent reports have surfaced suggesting that the Argentine magician could be the subject of a colossal €250million bid which would activate his release clause and therefore negate Barcelona's ability to reject the offer. His club thought appear adamant that they will not be tempted into a sale.
