Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi might make a fantastic combination at Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
After just one season back at Old Trafford, Cristiano Ronaldo put in a shocking transfer request to the Manchester United board and refused to attend pre-season training on Monday owing to “personal issues.”
Ronaldo’s unwavering ambition to compete for top honors and play Champions League games is said to be the driving force behind his demand, and PSG might provide him with exactly that.
If given the opportunity, Ronaldo would jump at the chance to compete in Ligue 1, a tournament in which he has never before participated, and assist Les Parisiens in their pursuit to finally win the Champions League.
PSG snatched Lionel Messi away from Barcelona over the previous summer on a record-free transfer and offered him a mega-money contract for the next two years. There, Messi, who played for Barcelona during Ronaldo’s time at Real Madrid, linked up with fellow stars Neymar and Mbappe; however, they were unable to advance past the first knockout round in the Champions League, something that ultimately led to Mauricio Pochettino losing his job as manager of Ligue 1 Giant.
PSG are getting increasingly anxious to finally get their hands on Europe’s greatest trophy 11 years after their Qatari-funded acquisition, although they were eliminated in the Round of 16 by eventual champions Real Madrid with a score of 3-2 on aggregate.
When Ronaldo made the decision to leave Juventus a year ago, the team from Parc des Princes immediately eliminated themselves from consideration to sign him. When questioned about the possibility of the Portuguese superstar following Messi to Paris, the club president at the time, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, responded by saying, “We haven’t even thought about it.”
This was during the summer. It is anyone’s guess how they will be able to stay in compliance with the Financial Fair Play regulations of UEFA, especially after granting Mbappe a brand new massive deal.
