Paris Saint-Germain ‘ PSG ‘ are considering bringing Cristiano Ronaldo to join up with long time rival Lionel Messi.
PSG completed the signing of Messi this week following his shock exit from Laliga giants Barcelona.
It means the Argentine superstar will form a deadly trio with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe – though the latter could leave the club next summer if he decides not to renew his contract.
And according to Diario AS, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is interested in signing Juventus star Ronaldo, should Mbappe decide to leave for Real Madrid.
It’s said that Al-Khelaifi is not open to selling Mbappe this summer despite believing that the French striker will not sign a new deal to take his stay at the Parc des Princes past this season.
While leaving Mbappe on a free would be a blow, Ronaldo will also be available for nothing next summer if he doesn’t sign a new deal at Juventus.
It would create an exciting prospect of a front three that also includes Neymar and which made up the top three spots for the Ballon D’or award in 2015 and 2017.
Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is said to be ‘aware of everything’ and that he would have extra motivation for the move.
Should Ronaldo join PSG next summer and sign a two-year deal with the club, it would take him to the age of 39 which is when he is reportedly considering taking a step aside or leaving for less demanding football in the United States or Qatar.
Messi and Ronaldo dominating the footballing landscape for over a decade as the greatest players on the planet.
The pair traded both club and personal honours with the pair winning 11 Ballon D’or awards between them.
