The Cameroon ace said: "I'm surprised by all this noise. I want to make clear that I never threatened to leave Barcelona.
"I told some kids that I was 27 years old and what I want is to keep winning things. If we do not win anything this year or next it will be three without winning anything and I cannot look into the eyes of fans here and continue sunbathing."
He added: "I will be with Barcelona next season."
