Reports in France claim Paris Saint Germain will trigger Lionel Messi's £210m release clause

Paris Saint Germain could be successful in an ambitious bid to sign Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, according to a report in today's Le Parisien.

The French publication claims PSG are one of few clubs capable of matching Messi's £210m release clause.

Messi recently spoke out against one of Barcelona's directors who questioned whether the multiple Ballon d'Or winner should be offered a pay rise.

It's thought Messi's relationship with the Catalan giants is at its weakest since he rose to prominence.
