Transfer news: PSG would 'bring in Lionel Messi' if there was no limit to their spending, says president
The French champions have been linked with the Barcelona forward
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has suggested it is only a limit to the French champions' spending that is stopping them from signing Lionel Messi.
Rumours emerged this week that suggested the Paris outfit were about to make a move for the Barcelona forward.
That triggered new Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu to insist: "Messi is not for sale".
However, it would seem Al-Khelaifi believes Messi could be prised away from the Nou Camp - but only if PSG had no limit to their spending.
"If we didn't have any limit, we'd bring in Messi," he told L'Equipe.
However, despite all of PSG's financial power, a move to the French capital for the Argentina international looks unlikely, with Al-Khelaifi adding: "If Messi isn't coming to Paris, it's because some limits really exist."
Perhaps Messi will want to go when he sees what Barcelona are having to wear...
