Ligue 1 giants in squad cull to help sign Real Madrid star.Paris Saint-Germain are thought to be readying a mammoth £70m bid for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo next summer, in an effort to beat Manchester United and Chelsea to his signature.
The Portuguese international, who moved in a then-world record £80m move to Real from United back in 2009, is thought to be unsettled at the Bernabeu after a number of sales of key players this summer, and a number of top clubs have been alerted to his potential availability.
French moneybags PSG are the latest to show an interest in the 29-year-old, widely regarded as one of the best players in the world at the moment, and are ready to offload four members of their first-team squad to ensure they can sign Ronaldo without breaching Uefa’s Financial Fair Play rules.
The players set for the axe at the Parc des Princes are certainly big names themselves, and should interest a number of top European clubs if they are allowed to leave on the cheap next year.
4) Ezequiel Lavezzi
With an asking price of as little as £15m, Argentine winger Ezequiel Lavezzi is likely to be one of the first in the firing line at PSG next summer, and should attract offers from Premier League clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. The former Napoli man has not found his best form since moving to the French capital, and Ronaldo would be a major upgrade in his place on the flanks.
