Barcelona coach Koeman responds to reports linking Messi with PSG

Ronaldo Koeman has rubbished reports linking Lionel Messi with a move away from Barcelona. 

Messi, whose contract with Barcelona is set to expire at the end of the current season has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain. Argentinian TV outlet TNT Sports claimed the Ligue 1 giants have offered Messi a three-year contract as well as the No 1 shirt, currently worn by Neymar. 

However, speaking to the media ahead of LaLiga clash with Granada, Koeman insisted he is not worried while urging the Argentine to spend the rest of his career at his current club.

"I'm not interested in PSG, I don't know if it's true," the Dutchman said.

"I hope he stays with us. For me, he should finish here because he's spent his whole life here, but ultimately it's a decision that he will have to make."

"It doesn't worry me at all, I'm just focused on winning [against Granada on Thursday]."

The 33-year-old has netted 26 LaLiga goals this season while grabbing five in the Champions League.
