Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman believes some people are out there with the aim of hurting Lionel Messi and by extension the club.

The Argentine superstar whose current deal with the Catalans expires this summer saw the details of his contract splashed on the pages of a Spanish newspaper over the weekend.

However, regardless of the unfavourable publication, the six-time Ballon d'Or winner went ahead to score his 650th goal for the Blaugrana in their 2-1 win over Athletic Bilbao at Camp Nou.

"Whoever has leaked Messi's contract cannot have a future at Barca. What has come out in the press about Messi was done maliciously.
"We have to try to know how this could have come out in the press. We have to concentrate on our season. The team's been fine lately. We won a lot of games. We don't have to focus on this issue, but there are people who want to hurt Barca and Leo.
"Messi has been demonstrating his quality as a footballer for years, has helped a lot to make this club great and has helped a lot to win titles."

Koeman denied that the publication inspired four-time Champions League winner to perform better in their win over Bilbao.
