The forward has toiled for a regular starting slot since his switch from Udinese to Barca 18 months ago amid claims he may seek a return to Serie A.
But this was denied by agent Fernando Felicevich. He said: “In no case will Alexis leave Barcelona. He has returned from injury and is playing well.
“Alexis is staying in Barcelona. He has no reason to leave. He is in the best team in the world. In addition to Barca is Lionel Messi, a player that everyone can learn from.”
