Messi, Barcelona's record goalscorer, is currently out injured with a calf injury. However, Barcelona breezed to a 5-2 win against Valencia on Saturday with more magic from 16-year-old Ansu Fati.
Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu confirmed rumours of a clause in Messi's contract that will allow him to leave the club at the end of the season.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner signed a new four-year deal with Barcelona in 2017, but Bartomeu says he is free to end his contract beforehand.
However, the Barca president said that the Catalan club are not worried about Messi's future, saying "we are very calm".
