The defending Ligue 1 giants are apparently adamant to rope in the FC Barcelona star to strengthen their squad. The superstar is yet to sign a contract extension with the La Liga giants.

A few day, media reports in Spain had suggested that Messi may reject a renewed offer from Barcelona for a contract extension.

Messi may not renew his contract with Barcelona

Messi's present contract with Barcelona expires in 2018. The Spanish side will go to any extent to keep Messi at the club given the fact he is their most cherished player.

Barcelona are reportedly going to offer a huge wage which will surely lure Messi to stay. At the moment PSG is one of those few clubs who can afford to pay a huge transfer fee as well as offer him an attractive wage.

The Catalans take on arch-rivals Real Madrid in the season's first 'El Clasico' on Saturday, December 3. They are struggling at the moment in the second position in the league tabel 6 points less than the 'Los Blancos'.
