Barcelona forward Lionel Messi is not for sale and the club plan to discuss a new contract with the Argentine, says president Josep Maria Bartomeu.
Four-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi, 26, is reported to be a target for French side Paris St-Germain.
In an interview with radio station RAC1, posted on Barcelona’s website, Bartomeu said: “The club will sit down and negotiate a new contract.
“We will do what we have to, to ensure he’s the best-paid player.”
Messi scored 60 goals in 50 appearances last season but has struggled to match that goalscoring form in 2013-14.
His last league goal came in September, before he was out for five weeks with a hamstring injury.
