Lionel Messi is set to stay with Barcelona despite his recent row with club sporting director Eric Abidal according to a report from British broadcaster Sky Sports.

Messi and Abidal came to blows after Abidal made some comments about the team and this led to widespread reports that the multi-time world player of the year could be about to leave Barcelona, who he has spent his entire career with.

The report however states that Messi has no intention of departing the reigning Spanish champions this Summer and is determined to at least see out the remainder of his contract with the club, which is due to expire at the end of next season.

Messi is seemingly open to holding contract extension talks but does not appear too keen on signing a long term deal and would rather sign up on a year by year basis.

Inter, Manchester City, Manchester United, Juventus and Paris Saint Germain were all linked with him but at least for the time being, they will have to forget about signing him.
