Bernabeu attacker open to move to Ligue 1 big spenders.
Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to offer more than £100millon to lure Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid to the French capital, according to reports in France and Spain.
The Portuguese joined the Spanish club three years ago for £80m but has at times this season appeared disillusioned with life in the Spanish capital.
A consultant at French radio station RMC reportedly saw a text from Ronaldo to a Spanish journalist which said he would rather move to Paris than sign a new deal with Madrid.

If this is indeed true and this source is to be believed then Real Madrid have something of an issue on their hands. There is no doubt that things have not been rosy between the Bernabeu side and Cristiano Ronaldo this term, with various run-ins reported over the past six months and the fact that the Spanish giants are now 11 points adrift of rivals Barcelona will not be helping matters.
It would be churlish to state that any unhappiness has affected the 27 year old’s form as Ronaldo has bagged an incredible 19 goals in 20 appearances but there is perhaps a chance he could be considering his options and in which case a reported £100m offer from PSG just may be considered by the La Liga outfit.
If Real Madrid were to consider selling Ronaldo there are only a select few sides in Europe who could even consider the kind of outlay needed to sign the Portuguese international. Two of those are Premier League based, namely Chelsea and Man City, and the former Man United man in very unlikely to consider a move to either of his former club rivals.
Another is PSG, a side who have been spending huge sums on building a squad they hope will not only win them their first domestic title in almost 20 years but also mount a Champions League challenge. Having already brought in the likes of Lucas Moura, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Parc des Princes side’s Qatari owners may be ready to make a huge statement of intent by looking to make a genuine attempt to sign the Real Madrid star.
