An-Najah News - Despite the Argentinian ace's apparent discontent at the Camp Nou, the Barcelona board are braced to resist any transfer bids for Lionel Messi as new boss Ronald Koeman.

Rumors have suggested that Messi's discontent at Barcelona's poor performance last season could lead to the club's star player deciding that his future lies away from the Catalan club. 

Koeman has been keen to ensure that details of his top-level talks with his club captain are kept under wraps."Barcelona has declared Messi as 'untransferable' and will not accept offers for him," Lorente wrote on Twitter (via translation). 

"Koeman counts on him for a new cycle and he still has a valid contract. The club will only sell players that Koeman does not want."
