The president acknowledged in Friday's press conference that Neymar wants to leave the Ligue 1 champions this off-season, although PSG are not willing to let their talisman leave.

There have been reports claiming Messi has spoken to management and requested the return of the Brazilian.

However, Bartomeu insists the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has not asked the club to sign any players, although he does want a competitive team.

"I heard that from the press, but Messi does not ask for players," he stated, according to Marca.
 
"He wants to play, he wants a good, competitive team, but the decisions are always down to club officials."
