Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says Leo Messi has given his word that he will be staying.

Inside the final year of his contract, Messi is being linked with Inter Milan.

But Bartomeu told Sport: “Messi has always said he wants to end his professional experience at Barca.

"Despite the fact his contract expires in 2021, Leo will have another three or four years of top level football.

“I have no doubts he will keep his word and see out his career in Barcelona."
