Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu says the club's transfer activity is an indication that they are preparing for life after Lionel Messi.

Barca last month confirmed the 65 million pound signing of 21‑year‑old midfielder Frenkie de Jong from Ajax.

31-year-old Messi has scored 581 goals in 664 games for Barcelona.

Bartomeu says he knows one day Lionel will say he is retiring adding that the team has to prepare for the future.

Messi still has another two years left on his current contract and Bartomeu says that Messi's retirement was a while away yet.
