Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano believes Lionel Messi is the only player whose talent makes him bigger than the club.

The Argentinian’s future at the Catalans has been questioned recently, as he is yet to sign a new deal while his current contract expires next year.

Barca’s humiliating 4-0 defeat by Paris Saint-Germain this week in the Champions League last-16 first leg, has further fuelled the speculation that Messi is looking for a move.

Commenting on the superstar’s value, compatriot Mascherano claimed he is more important than Barcelona itself.

“[Messi] is indispensable, but the rest of us are dispensable,” Mascherano told Barcelona’s official magazine.

“Leo is a unique player. We’re talking about the best player in history, for this club and for the sport. Important people have left Barca in recent years, people that will stay in the club’s history, but the team still works, it still wins.

“No, the club is bigger than any manager, than any player … except Leo. That’s the reality, and you have to accept it.”
