Barcelona president Laporta: I've not spoken to Messi since exit; PSG debut weird

Barcelona president Joan Laporta insists there's no tension with Lionel Messi.

It's been suggested Messi is furious with Laporta for refusing to renew his contract ahead of his shock departure to PSG.

But Laporta told Esport3: "We were both affected the day he left and it showed.

"I saw his debut with PSG and I didn't like it, it was a weird, weird situation. It's a team with which we have clashes. I haven't spoken to him since he left. The story must continue.

"The story must continue as he will always be a Barcelona fan. What I must say is that there was no overflow during the negotiations. Everything is normal in this context. There was no friction neither with his father nor with him."
