If Juventus plan to put their star man up for sale, Cristiano Ronaldo may be set for a spectacular move to PSG next summer.
The 35-year-old, who joined Real Madrid’s Serie A champions in 2018, is actually in Turin on £28 m a year, five times more than his highest-paid team-mate Paulo Dybala, and Juve is reportedly eager to get Ronaldo’s salary off their books.
PSG sporting director Leonardo declined to dismiss a move out of hand when asked about the possible availability of Ronaldo, instead noting that ‘anything unexpected might happen.’
‘Today we don’t know what is going to happen in football,’ he told PSGTV.
“Perhaps Cristiano Ronaldo will wake up tomorrow and decide that I want to go and play elsewhere. Who will buy him? It’s a closed circle. This circle is joined by PSG. It’s typically about possibilities, scenarios. We have to plan for the transfer window, and that’s what we do. We have our goals, our lists, but anything unexpected can happen.”
Leonardo maintained that the Ligue 1 champions still have the ‘power’ to prepare accordingly, despite the coronavirus crisis forcing Europe’s top clubs to scale back amid financial problems.
