Portuguese and Real Madrid star player, Cristiano Ronaldo would not likely move to French Champions Paris Saint Germain this summer, according to latest indications.
The player’s agent has met with Paris Saint-Germain to discuss a transfer to the Ligue 1 side from the Bernabeu, though the talks will not pave a way for a summer move this year.
Jorge Mendes, the proclaimed ‘super-agent’ responsible for handling matters involving the likes of Jose Mourinho, David De Gea and Ronaldo, is said to have travelled to Paris this week to hold discussions with PSG over a future move for the Real superstar.
Ronaldo has insisted he is happy at the Santiago Bernabeu, with the chance of a second Champions League winners’ medal in the space of three seasons a possibility when Real meet city rivals Atletico Madrid in the final later this month. Manchester United, along with PSG, have been linked with making a move for Ronaldo, but rumours of discontent earlier in the season have disappeared and the likelihood is that Ronaldo will remain with the Spanish club for next season.
For the 31 year old player, his future beyond the 2016/2017 season isn’t as clear. Real president Florentino Perez is determined to tie Ronaldo down to a new five-year contract in order for the three-time Ballon d’Or winner to end his career at the Santiago Bernabeu, but Ronaldo has spoken before that he doesn’t know what the future holds and he would consider leaving the club if the move was right.
According to French newspaper Le Parisien, Mendes met with PSG representatives this week to discuss a move next summer. Ronaldo is out of contract in 2018, and Real would have to realistically consider selling Ronaldo next summer if he decides against signing a contract extension. Fans at Old Trafford are open to the player’s return but the move seems very unlikely.
