FC Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has urged everyone to look beyond the Lionel Messi transfer saga. 

Bartomeu also said he has no plans to step down from his position despite a motion to remove him.

Messi, 33, returned to training with Ronald Koeman’s new-look Barca side this month after failing to engineer a move away from Camp Nou this summer. 

“As president, I will not enter into any conflict with Messi,” said Bartomeu. 

“Messi is our captain, our leader. The issue is parked. What has been said has been said. I couldn’t allow to let the best player in the world go. The team needs him, he guarantees success. Things have to be discussed at home. You have to support the team and the players.”

Bartomeu said Messi is excited about Koeman’s project.
