Josep Maria Bartomeu, who is the president of Barcelona has finally reacted to the sensational news on possible exit of Lionel Messi to EPL.

The Argentinian forward is involved in one of the greatest scandals. Reports indicate that the Argentine wants to have a feel of the English Premier League (EPL) where Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all shown interest to land the 28-year-old player.

However, Bartomeu has responded angrily to the reports about the transfer.

He said: “People who say Messi is leaving Barcelona should be embarrassed. Messi is recovering for the Madrid-Barcelona game. He is hoping to play El Clasico, but injuries have their process. Leo and his father said they don’t imagine playing at another club. The relationship with the family is very good. We are not in the negotiation phase yet, when the time comes it will be presented. He has a contract for the next three seasons. Messi is very angry about the Spanish taxation. It is not normal, the information published on Leo Messi. If his tax advisers have made a mistake they have to pay like everyone else. Messi deserves respect as all do.”

Speaking about Neymar’s contract situation, the director added: “On the renewal of Neymar, this is the season of his renewal, yes. But of course we try not to relay the negotiations and work quietly to be able to announce the extension of his contract.”

Messi is currently sidelined with a knee injury. Meanwhile, FIFA has announced the 23 man list for the coveted 2015 Ballon D’Or with Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi the headline names.

This is one of the most difficult career decisions I have had to take. It’s been an amazing 5 years journey, but after due consultation and extensive discussion with my family, I have decided it’s time for me to retire from the National team.

It’s has been an eventful and most memorable opportunity to serve my country with pride, passion and to contribute my quota to the development of our football, the memories would stay with me for a long time and I’m immensely grateful. It is now time to concentrate on Club football and give the younger players chance to learn and grow.

I would love to thank the NFF, coach Gernot Rohr for believing in me against all odds,to my teammates for their professionalism and team spirit without you guys I wouldn’t have achieved so much with this team.
