PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi appears to have dashed any hopes Manchester City had of signing Blaise Matuidi.
The 23-year-old midfielder has reportedly been targeted by the title contenders, but despite his contract running out at the end of the season, the Ligue 1 side do not appear keen to let him go during the current window.
Speaking to L'Equipe in an interview that was quoted by Sky Sports, he said: "Interest from Manchester City in Matuidi? I am not worried because they know that if they touch one of our players, then we will be in opposition to them, and we will go and contact their players too."
The midfielder has become a lynchpin for the current French champions, however, whilst his short term future looks set in France, he could still move on a free transfer this coming summer.
PSG are not short of midfielders with six still in the squad if Matuidi was to leave before Friday's transfer deadline.
With a rich backing, it's not hard to see them replacing the young midfielder at the drop of the hat. Some of the biggest names in football, including Barcelona and Argentina superstar Lionel Messi, have been linked to the football club in recent times.
PSG look on course to retain their Ligue 1 title as they are three points clear at the top of the table heading toward February.
