Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser al-Khalifa’s dream of being a mirror of Real Madrid’s galactic era has not yet come true. The Lego 1 giants may have ended the free transfer of the century with the removal of Lionel Messi, but the club is not ready to stop and is already looking forward to signing another mega free transfer in 2022.
Cristiano Ronaldo is in the eyes of the League 1 club. And he has been identified as a substitute for five-time Portuguese Ballon d’Or winner Killian Mbabane. The young French sensation has failed to accept a new contract offer from PSG, and will be a free agent in 2022, when he is expected to join the Madrid giants.
According to the Spanish publication AS.Al-Khalifa has already planned his departure and will move to Ronaldo, who will also be a free agent in 2022 if he fails to sign a new contract with Juventus. Portugal International are set to move this summer, but are also set to see the final year of their contract in Turin.
PSG is ready to welcome Ronaldo to the Parc des Princes, which will likely be a historic alliance of two great players of the current generation. Messi has signed a contract with the French club until 2023 with an option to extend it for another year, and the report claims that if the MBP decides to leave, the PSG will pay the former Real Madrid star. Will offer a one-year contract.
Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is aware of PSG’s interest. And if he becomes a free agent, they plan to take him to Paris next summer. This will not put the club under financial pressure as it will replace Portuguese forward Mbappe, who is currently one of the highest earners in the PSG squad.
Despite all the interest in Ronaldo, Al Khalifa is hoping that Messi’s arrival could persuade Mbabane to share his long-term future with Lego 1 fans. Real are interested in signing him this summer, but the PSG president has made it clear he will not approve any move.
