PSG considering move for Ronaldo
One of the world’s richest clubs Paris Saint Germain is contemplating easing Cristiano Ronaldo’s alleged ‘sad’ time at the Bernabeu.
However, PSG would undoubtedly need to break the Portuguese international’s world-record transfer of €98m from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009 if they are to succeed.
French outfit PSG’s spending-power has already seen Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva, along with a host of other stars, arrive in Paris for enormous fees last summer.
The main stumbling block in luring the former World Player of the year to Parc de Paris would be his current contract with Spanish giants Real Madrid, who were left reeling earlier in the season when Ronaldo unexpectedly announced he was “sad” with life at the Spanish champions.
SPSG transfer chief and former AC Milan man Leonardo said: “Cristiano Ronaldo? Paris St Germain have become a club where anything is possible.
“However, he still has an ongoing contract with Real Madrid and we have to realise that he will not leave Madrid for just any club.
“When we are discussing a possible transfer for a player like Cristiano Ronaldo, there are only four or five clubs that can be taken into consideration. PSG are one of those.”
PSG are currently top of the French league while Madrid lie in third 16 points behind leaders Barcelona in the Spanish La Liga.
Unrest among the Madrid squad is routinely reported and, with manger Jose Mourihno set to leave, Ronaldo may feel the time is right to find greener pastures elsewhere.
