While an arrival of Zinedine Zidane to replace Mauricio Pochetino is more and more evoked, PSG is also cited on the tracks of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Emir of Qatar wants a team capable of winning the Champions League next season and does not want to skimp on the means to strengthen the Parisian squad this summer.
PSG has contacted Cristiano Ronaldo for this summer
What if the Zinedine Zidane – Cristiano Ronaldo duo were to be reunited at Paris Saint-Germain this summer? This is the huge dream of Qatar. Indeed, in today’s edition, the newspaper AS reveals that Sheikh Tamim Ben Hamad Al Thani, owner of the Parisian club, would like to recruit the Portuguese star by the end of the summer mercato which opens on June 9. The Paris SG leaders have begun negotiations with the representatives of the Juventus striker.
“PSG has already established contacts with the entourage of the striker to play next year in Paris, a move that Cristiano sees favorably.

According to AS, the leaders of Juventus are not opposed to a transfer of Ronaldo, but demand between 25 and 30 million euros to let him go. According to the same source, the Bianconeri may also agree to negotiate if PSG agrees to include their striker Mauro Icardi in the deal. The former Inter Milan forward has always appealed to the Turin management and the new coach Massimiliano Allegri has already given his green light for the operation.
In the French capital, “the arrival of Cristiano is seen as a good economic deal. Nike is the sponsor of the Portuguese and the Parisians, so the signing would be beneficial for all three parties.
