Barcelona coach Quique Setien spoke to the media on Saturday ahead of the game against Villarreal on Sunday. However, he did not want to enter into speculation over Lionel Messi's future.

In this sense, Setien explained that Messi was happy in training and has not changed despite Cadena Ser's report that he wants to leave in 2021. 

"I am not going to speculate about that because I have not heard anything," Setien said. "I am not aware of him saying anything so I don't have anything to say. I won't speculate on it because it's not for me to do so."  

Asked again, he added: "I will repeat: Messi is fine. Everything else is speculation that I won't get involved in, that's what you (the press) are for. He's training well, we speak about what we have to speak about, nothing else."  

Messi is in the squad for Sunday's game having played every minute of every game since La Liga resumed following the three moment coronavirus break in June.
