Neither Messi nor Neymar will leave Barca: Bartomeu

European champions FC Barcelona’s president Josep Bartomeu was on Tuesday delighted at his team’s star striker Lionel Messi winning the Ballon D’ Or for a historic fifth time and promised that neither the Argentine nor his team-mate and fellow award nominee Neymar will be leaving the club.

Messi won the footballer of the year award, given by global football’s governing body FIFA, for a record fifth time, ahead of Neymar who finished third in the voting, reports Xinhua.

Both Messi and Neymar have been linked with a move to England for the next season. With former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola thought to be in line to coach an English club next season, those rumours have been getting louder of late.
