[Joan Gaspart claims Lionel Messi has been sending warnings to Barcelona that he doesn’t like how the club is going] What I can say is that I want to be at Barcelona as long as possible. I’ve said throughout my career that this is my home. But I also don’t want to have a long-term contract and only be here because of it. I want to be here because physically I’m fine, to play and be an important member of the squad

[He went on say, while admitting that he is not in talks regarding a new contract] I need to see there’s a winning team because I want to keep winning things at this club. For me, money or a clause don’t mean anything. Other things motivate me and the most important thing is having a winning team

[He told Cadena Ser on Messi’s exit clause] Andres Iniesta and Xavi had things like this in their contracts, it’s nothing new. What Messi has is part of the philosophy of Barca. I know him well and I don’t think his words were a challenge to the club because it’s not his style. After every statement came a ‘but’ and while the club might understand them as irrelevant, I think they are warnings that he doesn’t like how the club is going

I know that Barcelona and the president tried to sign Neymar but PSG asked for €300 million and while Neymar is an exceptional player, as a matter of dignity, they couldn’t do it. Barcelona did well trying to sign him

I understand that he can still contribute. What I don’t know is the fine print. I forgive what it takes to get him back. I would like him to play for Barca
