Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly allocated £80m of their summer budget towards signing Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt.
The 19-year-old's form this season has gained widespread admirers, resulting in a number of clubs lodging big-money bids ahead of next season.
However, according to Sport, PSG are ready to outbid the Catalan giants - in terms of both transfer fee and wages - in order to strengthen their backline.
The Ligue 1 champions must ensure that they comply with FFP regulations, although it appears that the club's hierarchy are ready to commit a huge outlay to acquire the services of De Ligt.
PSG are allegedly prepared to pay De Ligt as much as £6.5m more than Barcelona each year.
