Cristiano Ronaldo is considering leaving Manchester United to play in the Champions League. And while his name is often circulated in the capital, can the Portuguese sign for Paris Saint-Germain?
Every summer, Cristiano Ronaldo’s future has been regularly linked with Paris Saint-Germain. This is still the case this year. The Portuguese, who was absent from Manchester United training on Monday for “personal reasons”, has reportedly expressed to his captaincy his desire to leave the club in the north of England, as he wants to play in the Champions League next season. What the Mancunian formation will not do after finishing in sixth placeH A place in the Premier League is synonymous with the Europa League.
But few clubs have the means to secure the services of the five-year-old Ballon d’Or, which still has a one-year contract with the Red Devils. However, this is the case for PSG, one of the rare teams that can afford his important salary. It remains to be seen if the capital club, which will take on a more Portuguese accent after the recent arrival of Luis Campos as Vitina’s sports and international advisor, will be interested in his arrival.
Like Lionel Messi last summer, Cristiano Ronaldo could be an opportunity the French champions cannot miss, for both sporting and external reasons. The 37-year-old former Real Madrid player has shown that he remains highly capable both at club and with the Portugal national team thanks in particular to his professionalism as well as his irresistible lifestyle. And it would be incredible to link up with Leo Messi and Kylian Mbappe.
The arrival of the “CR7” may also be seen as a good move in terms of promotion and sale of jerseys, so dear to the eyes of the Parisian leaders. Not to mention that he will be a huge spotlight on Qatar just months away from the World Cup in the emirate.
Against the statements of Nasser Al-Khulaifi
But his arrival was completely contrary to Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s recent statements. After a disappointing season, despite regaining the title of French champion, the Parisian president announced that he wanted to start a new era, less “bling bling”. “Today, above all, we must be realistic, we no longer want glamorous glamor, it is the end of glamor,” he told the Parisian.
It would also be incomprehensible after he let Angel Di Maria go, at the end of the contract, and above all after he succeeded in extending Kylian Mbappe to make the French striker the new main man in the Parisian project. These reasons complicate the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo to the capital, despite the closeness of his entourage to Luis Campos and the presence of a number of Portuguese in the workforce. Especially since at present, Chelsea would be in the best position to recruit him.
