Why Cristiano Ronaldo should never have left Manchester United for Real Madrid
Paris Saint-Germain’s interest in signing Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is genuine and strong this summer, with Financial Fair Play the only barrier in the move.
According to a detailed report from the Daily Telegraph, the French champions would need Zlatan Ibrahimovic off their wage bill in order to afford the deal, with Real likely to ask for a world-record £87m for the Portuguese international.
With Ibrahimovic now 33 and only having one year left on his contract, it is not beyond the realms of possibility that PSG could be ready to let their star player go, with the Sweden international possibly approaching the end of his glittering career at the top level.
The Telegraph adds that AC Milan are showing an interest in re-signing their former player, who has also previously shone in Italy with their city rivals Inter Milan, as well as with Juventus earlier in his career.
Although a move for Ronaldo is not currently on the cards, this article claims that a move is not impossible and is one that would interest PSG, depending on how Ibrahimovic’s situation at the Parc des Princes resolves itself.
In a shock revelation, the Telegraph adds that Real would consider selling their best player, even while he is still at his peak and expected to play on for another five or seven years. At the age of 30, it may be harder to shift the former Manchester United man for big money beyond this summer, even if he remains one of the best players in the world.
Ronaldo scored 61 goals in 2014/15, his best-ever tally for a season, though this was not enough to help Madrid to any major trophies as Barcelona beat them to the three main pieces of silverware they will have been after – La Liga, the Champions League and the Copa del Rey.
Still, a big-money offer for the free-scoring forward might persuade the Spanish giants to let him move, and this would no doubt be a major coup for PSG as they look to continue building a side that can dominate in France and make the step up in European competition after landing a number of other world class names in recent years.
