Although it borders mostly on the improbable, Cristiano Ronaldo’s latest drama triangle with the Spanish tax authorities and Real Madrid appears to have cooked up a chance for PSG to sign the one player they have admired since laying their hands on Petrodollars.

The Parisians have had a fair share of superstars join since signing the Portuguese seemed impossible. Edison Cavani, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and an impressive number of quality players have bought in to their gospel for the past 6 years.

That doesn’t mean they ever stopped burrowing through paper works and mathematical probabilities on the chances of signing the former Manchester United man.

Varane is yet to hit top form after his injury. Ramos is untouchable so Pepe, who is set to return, would pair his captain in the Champions League final. (more…)
