Paris Saint-Germain issue Lionel Messi bid threat to Barcelona

Paris Saint-Germain president Sheikh Nasser Al-Khelaifi will try to sign Barcelona’s Lionel Messi if the La Liga giants continue their interest in Thiago Silva, according to reports in France.

Barcelona have been linked with Brazil international Thiago Silva in recent weeks with the Catalan giants rumoured to be prepared to meet the 28-year-old’s buy-out clause.

But PSG’s president warned that should a bid materialise from the Spanish champions, then the French club will attempt to lure reigning Ballon d’Or winner Messi to Paris, a feat which would cost the club €250 million.

“If Barca pay the buy-out clause of Thiago Silva then I will meet Messi’s buy-out clause,” he told ActuSports.fr.

And Al-Khelaifi continued his attempts to dissuade his European rivals by admitting PSG would stay tracking a number of Barcelona players.
