Barcelona president Sandro Rosell says Lionel Messi deserves to be the highest paid player in the game. Messi is pushing for a contract upgrade this month.

"We have not yet spoken to Messi about a new contract but the door to our office is always wide open," Rosell told reporters.

"He has to be the best-paid player in the word because he is the best player on the planet."
