PSG deny Ronaldo interest

Paris Saint-Germain have denied a report they are prepared to pay Real Madrid €100m for Cristiano Ronaldo.

A report in La Gazetta dello Sport claimed the French outfit’s owner Sheikh Hamad Al-Thani wanted to take Ronaldo to the Parc des Prince along with Madrid boss Jose Mourinho.

However, sources close to PSG President Nasser El Kkelaifi consulted by Marca say there is no intention of making an offer for the Portuguese star, who was reportedly set to receive around €18m-a-year from the transfer.

Nor, it is maintained, will there be an attempt to land Mourinho as he has consistently stated that after his stint at the Santiago Bernabeu his preferred destination is England.

Although there have been differences between Ronaldo and Madrid’s hierarchy this season, the Spanish champions have no intention of selling their prize asset to any other club, although he has still to agree to put pen to paper on a contract extension.

His current agreement expires in three years and, despite La Gazetta claiming his agent Jorge Mendes had already met PSG officials, Madrid President Florentino Perez will try to reach a suitable compromise with the former Manchester United man.
