Barcelona coach Tata Martino is reluctant to get in the middle of Lionel Messi's contract row.

Barca finance chief Javier Faus has publicly shutdown talk of upgrading Messi's deal this week.

"Messi needs to feel loved, but it's not just about money," said Martino.

"Messi needs to feel comfortable and loved, and so for me it's not just about money. I take no part and don't want to take part in the goings on regarding the players' contracts."
