Messi tells Barcelona: Sell Vermaelen to Watford

Thomas Vermaelen has no future at Barcelona, it has been revealed.

Currently on-loan at Roma, the Belgium defender will return to parent club Barca at the end of the Serie A season.

However, Diario Gol says Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique have made it clear to Barca officials that Vermaelen needs to be moved on this summer.

The pair insist the former Arsenal captain isn't the solution as Barca seek to bolster their defensive options for next season.

Vermaelen has been linked with a return to England, where Watford are keen.
