Barcelona chief: “Lionel Messi is committed to the club”

Barcelona chief Ariedo Braida is confident Lionel Messi is committed to the La Liga club.

With his contract remaining unsigned, despote terms being agreed over two months ago, the 30-year-old Argentina international continues to be linked with a move to Manchester City.

Barcelona star now has less than a year to run on his current contract, but Braida insists the Catalan club are calm.

“Messi is a real champion, one of the best,” he told Tuttosport.

“He’s a unique player, a huge player who has Barcelona in his heart. That’s why I think he will not budge.”
