Barcelona draws 0-0 at Juventus to secure top spot in group

Barcelona draws 0-0 at Juventus to secure top spot in group

36-year-old defender Barzagli was speaking to the club website ahead of Barcelona's visit to Turin, claiming that the squad don't need any extra motivation heading into their penultimate Champions League group stage match.

He said: "Leo's part of the club's badge".

The Argentina worldwide is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal despite the club announcing in July an agreement for the five-time Ballon d'Or victor to remain at the Nou Camp until 2021.

"But right now I do not say to myself 'this is my past year and I am leaving.' I think of the present and try to win everything". To their credit the visitors did seem more eager to find a goal than they had in the first half, and they often looked to switch play to Deulofeu on the right flank to catch out Juve's regimented back three.

"Juve were in great shape last season and won, but it'll be a very different game tomorrow and they are certainly motivated to make up for their defeat at Camp Nou".

"The only thing we can say as team-mates is we want him to stay". "I think he travelled here [to Italy] with us and we're not going to think too much further beyond that". He has all our support and we enjoy being with him.

"I don't know how important the photo [of Messi signing the contract] is".

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu moved to reassure supporters in September the deal had been signed, albeit by the player's father. The near miss seemed to spark Juventus into action and they began to probe for an opener, though they lacked a final killer pass to open up a Barca defence that was certainly presenting a few openings.

There are fears Messi could leave for nothing when his current terms expire and if the new contract does indeed remain unsigned, he will be free to talk to other teams in January.
