The poll asks whether readers “would sell Cristiano Ronaldo to PSG for €125 million”.
After over 11,500 votes, the site’s readers have voted overwhelmingly for the sale of the player.
At the time of writing, a considerable 72.2 percent of respondents—over 8,350 people—would accept a €125 million sale for the player. By contrast, only 27.8 percent of readers [translating as just over 3,220 people] would be against a sale of the side’s star man.
Considering the impact Ronaldo has had both this season and over recent campaigns, the results are surprising.
The forward has managed a remarkable 45 goals in 34 league appearances so far this term, numbers that surpass his recent magnificent league tallies of 26, 40, 34 and 31 goals in four of his last five campaigns at the Bernabeu. He scored 46 goals in the 2011-12 season, as Real won the league, and may still equal or better this total against Getafe on Saturday.
During his time at Real, he helped the club to the Decima, the long-awaited tenth Champions League title, last season.
However, the side’s failings this term have been marked, and they appear to have fostered a climate of unease at the club heading into the summer.
Heading into the final day of the season, Real sit four points behind champions Barcelona, while they were eliminated in the semi-finals of the Champions League by Juventus.
The future of manager Carlo Ancelotti remains uncertain [according to the Daily Mail], while Ronaldo has been increasing linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
