French media reports that Paris Saint-Germain are looking to cover up Kylian Mbappe’s potential exit by making a sensational move for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Mbappe has been linked with a move to Real Madrid since his breakout season with Monaco. He completed a € 180million transfer to Ligue 1 champions PSG in 2017. However, Mbappe’s future at the club hangs in the balance amid growing interest from the Galacticos.
Paris Saint-Germain are now studying the possibility of catching up with Cristiano Ronaldo if Mbappe leaves the Parc des Princes this summer. The World Cup winner has yet to commit his future to PSG, with his contract expiring in 12 months.
There are also doubts about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future with Juventus after suffering another Champions League exit at the hands of FC Porto on Wednesday.
The Turin club were planning a team overhaul this summer, and with Ronaldo expiring in less than a year, Juventus could look to cash in on the Portuguese star. They will also be able to reduce their payroll as they will no longer have to pay Ronaldo’s annual salary of 31 million euros.
Paris Saint-Germain have been heavily linked with a decision by Lionel Messi last year. However, they have now set their sights on his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo. If Mbappe is looking for a summer exit from the French capital, PSG have identified Cristiano Ronaldo as a replacement at constant scope.
Reports claim that PSG president Al-Khelaifi has been in contact with Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes and that a potential move is now being considered.
Despite his 36 years, Cristiano Ronaldo has proven that he is still one of the best strikers in world football. He currently leads the Serie A scorecard with 20 goals in 22 appearances, with three assists to his name.
