Messi ready to speak to Perez

Perez is expected to return to his role as Real Madrid president this summer.

But Messi insists he is happy at Barcelona and does not want to leave the Camp Nou.

“Yes, I would take his call,” he told AS. “I am not waiting for him to ring.

“I do not think he would call me anyway because he is after other players.

“I want to stay with Barca. My plan is to stay here. I came to Barcelona as a child and they have given everything to me. I am one of the people here.

“So, no, I do not believe Florentino will call because he knows this about me.”
