Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba: For now, Messi 100% committed here

Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba has no doubts about Lionel Messi's commitment.

Despite the Argentine being linked with a potential move to PSG, once his contract expires in the summer, Messi is still a Barcelona player right now and Jordi Alba does not think the No.10 will be at all distracted by the transfer talk.

"Even if I had my future clear in my mind, I wouldn't reveal my plans yet," Jordi Alba said in a pre-match press conference when asked about Messi and his future.

"For now, he is 100 percent committed to Barcelona.

"With him, we're better and stronger and I hope he stays here for many more years. But, it's his decision and that needs to be respected.

"Right now, he is focused on Barcelona. You can see that in every match.

"He'll decide at the end of the season. We don't pay attention to what other players or clubs are saying right now. Many people talk, but he'll have the final word and he'll have thought long and hard about his decision. He'll do what he thinks is best."
