Lionel Messi: FC Barcelona talisman admits fears of Neymar transfer to

Lenglet went over Barça's latest news. EFE

"I have a contract for a couple more years, there is no better place to play than Barcelona, the best club in the world, but I want to play and not enjoy walking around the city and enjoying the sea", Rakitic said of his situation at Barcelona.

"Obviously it is a lie that I did not want Griezmann", he told RAC1.

It's hard and embarrassing, I want to play for Barcelona and not just be part of that team.

The pair have not faced each other since Ronaldo left Real Madrid for Juventus last summer and Messi has revealed he wanted his old rival to stay in Spain.

"When we controlled a little better that situation, I think that we were closer to compete with them".

"My idea is to stay for many years".

"Today it is clearer that my idea is to finish here", Messi said.

Messi maintains there are no issues and knows adapting to Barcelona and the current interpretation of their famed style takes time.

Throughout the summer there were rumours that Messi was encouraging the Barcelona board to re-sign Neymar from PSG, with Messi saying he'd have "loved" to see the Brazilian return.

It is unclear how the former Atletico Madrid forward will slot into the side with Luis Suarez and Messi, and Griezmann suggested last weekend that communication with the talisman is not as good as it could be.

Xabi Alonso has opened up about the deadly threat of Lionel Messi when he was deployed as a false nine and how Real Madrid eventually tried to contain him. "I have never had problem with him coming".

"It was not the coach's fault but it was also not my decision for him to stay", Messi said. We froze and the memory of Rome (when they lost 3-0 the previous season after a 3-1 home first-leg quarter-final win) came into our heads. "My legs hurt against Sevilla but it's what happens when you come back".
