Report – PSG prepared to offer Ronaldo €45 million yearly
- Updated: May 30, 2018
Real Madrid set a legendary record in the UEFA Champions League some nights ago, but the joy of the feat appears to be seemingly short-lived as a major catalyst that saw them own Europe’s elite club competition in the past three years is being reported to be interested in an exit from the Santiago Bernabeu, and one of the transfer giants in Europe appears to have picked the signal.
It is being reported that Paris Saint-Germain have told Real Madrid that they want to sign Cristiano Ronaldo this summer as the club’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is still intent on realizing his dream of having a frontline of Portuguese star, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
Manu Sainz of AS has indicated that PSG are willing to pay €15o million to sign Ronaldo whose release clause is €1 billion. They would also need to pay him a salary of €, in line with Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.
Speculations on Ronaldo departing the Santiago Bernabeu have heightened, especially after some comments were made by the 33-year-old after Real Madrid emerged victoriously over Liverpool, to attain an unprecedented status of triple successive UEFA Champions League winners. The comments according to Spanish football writer Dermot Corrigan were as follows:
“In coming days there’ll be answer about my future. It has been very nice playing for Real Madrid.”
Meanwhile, PSG are among a handful of clubs in the world that can match the financial demands and ambitions of Cristiano Ronaldo although there are a number of reasons why a proposed move to the Parc des Princes may fall through according to Sainz.
The challenges of the move as noted by Sainz are the prospects of Ronaldo’s move paving the way for Neymar to move in the opposite direction as well as the restrictions of the Financial Fair Play rules. Any move from PSG to acquire Ronaldo without the possible departures of either Mbappe or Neymar who recently arrived at the club will certainly raise Financial Fair Play eyebrows.
