PSG have told Barcelona that Thiago Silva is not for sale, whatever the price.
Silva has established himself as one of the best central defenders in the world after excelling for both PSG and former club AC Milan.
And with Barcelona on the look out for defenders this transfer window, manager Tito Villanova had identified the Brazilian as one of his top targets.
But PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has said that he won’t consider any offers for his star centre-back.
Speaking to French newspaper Sport, he said: "Thiago Silva is not for sale. He will stay at the club until the end of his contract.
"The problem is not that Barca are not offering us enough money. We simply do not want to negotiate his sale.
"We won't evaluate any offers or contemplate selling him. We won't even sit down to negotiate.
"Selling is exactly the opposite of what we want to do. Our intention, after winning the domestic league title, is to fight for other more ambitious goals and make more signings."
One of these transfers that PSG are trying to make is bringing Edinson Cavani to the club. They have been linked heavily with the Uruguayan striker in recent times as they look to strengthen a squad that is already bursting with talent.
