PSG may have mega-money plans to try and lure Lionel Messi away from Barcelona at some point, but the Catalan club have insisted the Ligue 1 champions would eb wasting their time.
Speaking to Spanish radio station Onda Cero, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu claimed the club would never even consider accepting a bid for Messi.
Further to that, he claimed it was the intention of everyone at Camp Nou, all the club's fans and Messi himself that the Argentina international end his career only ever having played for Barcelona.
"We can never sell Messi because is the best player in the world. It is the desire of most Barcelona fans, and I think of Messi himself, that he finishes his career here," he said.
Messi has recently returned from nearly two months out with a thigh injury, but he could not save his side falling to a shock 3-2 defeat at home to Valencia last weekend.
That defeat meant Atletico Madrid's 4-0 thrashing of Real Sociedad on Sunday took them three points clear at the top of La Liga.
However, there was something of a reprieve the following day, as rivals Real Madrid could only draw 1-1 at Athletic Bilbao, with Cristiano Ronaldo managing to get himself sent off. That left los Blancos level on points with Barcelona and made this the most interesting title race Spain has seen for a long time.
