‘Barca know what Messi wants’

Luis Suarez assures Barcelona “already know what Lionel Messi wants” after playing down the media “circus” that has been made of the No 10’s renewal.

Suarez and Messi both scored during Barca’s 5-0 demolition of Las Palmas on Saturday, which went some way towards easing the Press scrutiny of remarks by two club executives on the No 10’s proposed new contract.

“The win? We deserved everything we got,” the Uruguayan said after the game.

“I don’t know if it was our best game of the season, but we beat a team that always make it difficult. The most important thing was to get the three points.

“We try to play the majority of our games in the most comfortable way.

“We played some very good football in both halves. I tried to help and did so with my two goals.

“Messi? The circus is the Press’ making. The club already know what Messi wants. We’re very calm in spite of everything that’s been said.”
