Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has ruled out bringing Barcelona star Lionel Messi to the French capital.

Reports suggested that PSG were set to activate the Argentine's release clause, reported to be around €250m.

However, the Qatari has denied any interest in Messi, who was recently ruled out for up to two months.

"I haven't spoken to Messi because I'm not interested," Al-Khelaifi told AS.

"You would have to ask the Barca president (if he is available), not me.

"I won't pay what they say he's worth. I'm a realist and that amount is unrealistic," he added.

"I'm not thinking about the possibility at all."
