Lionel Messi is reportedly against the idea of Barcelona moving to sign Red Bull Salzburg youngster Erling Braut Haaland.

Lionel Messi has reportedly rejected the idea of Barcelona moving to sign Red Bull Salzburg youngster Erling Braut Haaland next summer.

The Norwegian has enjoyed a remarkable run of goalscoring form so far this season, netting 11 goals in eight games domestically along with claiming a hat-trick on his Champions League debut against Genk.

Such achievements have led to reports suggesting that a number of top clubs, including Barcelona, are interested in the teenager.

According to a report from Spain, however, Messi is unconvinced by Haaland, who he believes has a notably different playing style compared with the players currently at Barcelona.

Ernesto Valverde has already made a considerable addition to his attack in the form of Antoine Griezmann, who joined for £108m in the summer, but the club is now looking a successor to the role of Luis Suarez.

Reports have claimed that both Manchester clubs, Real Madrid and Juventus have all established an interest in the youngster as well.
