Messi surprised Barcelona on Tuesday night, when he asked for his contract, which has a year still to run, to be terminated under an end-of-season release clause with immediate effects.

His intention came after Ronald Koeman’s appointment as Quique Setien’s successor last week, following a disappointing season which ended with an 8-2 Champions League quarter-final defeat to Bayern Munich.

However, speaking as the club unveiled €31m new signing, Francisco Trincao, on Wednesday, sporting director Ramon Planes told reporters that Barcelona are putting every effort into ensuring that the relationship between the club and Messi will continue.
