Paris St Germain's president will attempt to sign Lionel Messi from Barcelona for 250million euros if the Spanish giants meet Thiago Silva's buyout clause, according to reports in France

If PSG reach Messi's buy-out clause of 250million euros then Barcelona will have no option but to let Messi talk to PSG. 

But would the Argentine really leave the Spanish giants? Most people believe that Messi - who joined the club at 13 - will remain at Barcelona for the rest of his life.

Ever since the end of last season, there have been a lot of rumours and speculation that Barcelona wanted to sign the Brazilian to help strengthen their defence, and it turns out these rumours were true.

PSG president Sheikh Nasser Al-Khelaifi is extremely unhappy that Barcelona are continuously being linked with PSG's Brazilian defender. 

If the Spanish champions carry on getting in touch with Silva's representative, he has promised to play them at their own game, by making an outrageous bid for the world's best player.

Al-Khelaifi told ActuSports: "If Barca pay the buyout clause of Thiago Silva then I will meet Messi's buy-out clause."

Earlier this week, Camp Nou supremo Sandro  publicly declared that Barcelona want Silva and that has not impressed the player's current club.

Now it appears then that PSG are ready to meet Messi's buy-out clause and will offer him the most lucrative contract in world football.

So, what would PSG be getting? Messi has won the Ballon d'Or for four consecutive seasons and in 2012, became the highest goalscorer in a calendar year, scoring 91 goals and beating Gerd Muller's record of 85.

Messi would definitely make PSG a force to be reckoned with and could possibly help them win the Champions League. However, I highly doubt Messi will ever leave Barcelona.
