Suarez says Messi will sign new deal.



Luis Suarez is convinced Lionel Messi will remain with Barcelona despite the uncertainty over contract negotiations.

The former Liverpool striker said the Argentina star will sign a new deal as he can't see Messi playing elsewhere.

Speaking before Barca's 5-0 win against Las Palmas on Saturday, president Josep Maria Bartomeu said Messi is important to the club and he has been discussing with the forward's family.

"The movie [rumours] is created by you [the media]," Suarez told beIN Sports. "The president has said that they want him to renew, but they always end up misunderstanding some things that are said.
