Cristiano Ronaldo’s representatives have dismissed reports claiming that the Real Madrid star met with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
France Football reported that the 31-year-old had travelled to Paris last week with a view of discussing a potential move to the French capital in the summer.
However, his agent, Jorge Mendes, has denied that Ronaldo had met with Al-Khelaifi, telling Cadena Cope that the story was entirely untrue.
The rumour has circulated, perhaps coincidentally, at the same time as reports suggested that Jose Mourinho had been approached by the Ligue 1 champions, as noted by Sky Sports.
PSG’s continued failure in the Champions League was cited as the reason behind their decision to consider their options in replacing Laurent Blanc at the end of the season.
In turn, it could be a busy summer for the Parisian giants if they are to make such significant moves, although evidently there is a long way to go before they get to that stage based on the fact that no talks or approaches have even been confirmed.
Despite dominating domestically, the French outfit unsurprisingly have a desire to make a bigger impact in Europe. In turn, that would naturally spark speculation linking them with two influential figures in European football, with both Mourinho and Ronaldo having plenty of experience of delivering at the top level.
It remains to be seen whether or not the pair would work together again following their previous stint in Madrid, while they will both have offers elsewhere to consider with Sky Sports noting that Manchester United could remain an option for the ‘Special One’.
Since his sacking by Chelsea last December, the Portuguese tactician has consistently stated that his desire is to return to management at the end of this season, and it appears as though he could have two European giants to choose from with Ronaldo potentially joining his new project.
