Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says he'd never make a move for Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Guardiola doesn't believe such a deal would suit Bayern.

"[Bayern president] Uli Hoeness surely would never offer to spend a fortune to sign Messi," he told reporters.

"Bayern Munich does not work that way, and the player is happy at Barcelona."
