In the wake of PSG's multi-billionaire owner Sheikh Nasser Al-Khelaifi's startling promise to trigger Lionel Messi's £215 million release clause, should Barcelona attempt the same in their hunt for Thiago Silva, we take a look at a potential World XI you could bring together for the same price as the Argentine genius. 

The premise is simple, we've taken 11 of football's finest based solely upon their current market values, and not taking into equation the factors of player happiness or the club's intentions, and created a World XI for under £215 million (£196 million actually).

One has to really ask himself, as brilliant as Messi undoubtedly is, is he really equal to this lot?
