PSG Mercato : After Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo could land at Paris SG this summer. A former Arsenal legend is convinced.
PSG Mercato: Cristiano Ronaldo ready to leave Manchester United?
Back last summer, Cristiano Ronaldo could already pack his bags and leave Manchester United again. Despite a contract that runs until June 2023, the Portuguese star could leave the Red Devils‘ ranks prematurely if he fails to qualify for the next Champions League. At 37 years old, the best striker in the history of Real Madrid still feels capable of playing at the highest level.
Ronaldo wants to continue to shine in the Champions League and therefore he could not continue with Manchester United if there is no qualification for the Cup with the big ears. The former Arsenal player, Paul Merson, is totally convinced of this. Moreover, he sees him leaving the Premier League to go and shine in a league that meets the requirements of his age, the Ligue 1.
PSG Mercato: Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo finally together?
In case Kylian Mbappe leaves for Real Madrid this summer, Paris Saint-Germain will do everything to attract a new star capable of filling the void he could eventually leave. While several names are associated with the Red and Blue, Paul Merson sees Qatar coming for Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United to form a dream duo with Lionel Messi.
“This may be Cristiano Ronaldo‘s last season in the Premier League. He will want to play in the Champions League, he has played it all his career,” the former English midfielder told Sportskeeda before revealing the future plan of CR7.
“Frankly, I would be surprised if Ten Hag wanted to keep him. PSG can go for him as a short-term replacement for Kylian Mbappe. PSG only dreams of one thing: winning the Champions League. And Cristiano Ronaldo has shown that he can be an asset in that quest. He scores goals and sells jerseys, he does everything. The Ligue 1 will not tire him and he can focus on the Champions League. We could see, with Lionel Messi, two of the greatest players of all time playing for the same team,” said Paul Merson.
It remains to be seen if Paris SG is still thinking about the five-time Golden Ball winner.
