Josep Maria Bartomeu has not travelled this Monday to Manchester to attend the Champions League round of 16 between Barça and City, but he will do it this Tuesday. So last evening he attended the radio station RNE, where he denied Messi having asked him to bring Kun Agüero to Barça or asking for Luis Enrique to be fired. Here you have his best statements:

Messi - Luis Enrique

"Something happened in the squad, but what's important is that when they have a problem, they also have solutions."

Alves' renewal

"The club is already working in the next season. Rexach, Braida, Bordas and Mestre [the Football comission] are planning it, but with absolute secrecy. We'll have to wait until March or April to know the first details."

Neymar's signing

"I repeat: it cost  €57,5 million."

Zubizarreta's dismissal

"It was a change of strategy. He had been in the club for a long time and we though it would be ok to bring some new people with new ideas."

Possible Copa final

"I wouldn't agree to play it at Camp Nou."
