Lionel Messi has denied claims that Dimitar Berbatov is a target for Barcelona.

The Fulham striker has recently been linked with the Catalan giants but Messi insists the Bulgarian will not be coming to the Nou Camp anytime soon.

"I haven't heard the rumour that Berbatov is linked to Barcelona. In fact he is a good player, he has experience in a big team," Messi told TV7.

"It's not my business to interfere with the club's transfer decisions but I think it's impossible for Dimitar to join Barcelona."
