Cristiano Ronaldo Can Still Join PSG – Leonardo
Cristiano Ronaldo moving to Paris Saint-Germain has not been ruled out by the Ligue 1 club’s sporting director, with Leonardo admitting that anything is possible in an unpredictable market.
Rumours have started to surface regarding the long-term future of the Portugal international at Juventus, with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner tied to a contract in Turin through to the summer of 2022.
There have, however, been suggestions that the Bianconeri could open themselves up to offers next summer, allowing them to get the best possible price for a player who will turn 36 in February.
Few clubs could afford to finance a deal for Ronaldo, even at this late stage of his career, but PSG do slip into an elite bracket.
Leonardo admits as much, with the Brazilian refusing to close the door on a potential switch to France for a modern-day icon.
Quizzed on PSGTV as to whether a move for Ronaldo could be made, Leonardo said:
“Today in football we do not know what will happen. Maybe tomorrow Cristiano Ronaldo wakes up and says I want to go play elsewhere.
“Who can buy him? It’s a closed circle. PSG enters this circle. Usually it is about opportunities, situations.
“The transfer window, we have to prepare for it and that’s what we do. We have our priorities, our lists, but something unforeseen can happen.”
