Reports in Spain suggested earlier this week that the La Liga champions were looking at the Bulgarian striker as possible short-term cover for the injured Messi.

However the Argentine ace feels the arrival of Berbatov, 32, at the Camp Nou would be 'impossible'.

"I haven’t heard the rumour that Berbatov is linked to Barcelona. In fact he is a good player, he has experience in a big team," he told TV7.
