The sporting director of the Ligue 1 giants Leonardo has admitted to the possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo move in the summer.
Cristiano Ronaldo’ future at Juventus appears to be uncertain as rumored, even though he has a contract in Turin through to the summer of 2022.
There have been rumors suggesting the Serie A champions will be willing to let the five times Ballon d’Or winner go in the summer just before his value depreciate further.
PSG are only one of the few clubs that can afford the services of the Portuguese International even at 36 years old.
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.”
Leonardo has admitted that the option will be weighed before the end of the year, however, he is not expecting much movement in the transfer window due to the financial crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
“We have not thought about playing the entire season behind closed doors,”Leonardo added.
“We can’t talk about the amount of money, but it’s easy to calculate. Last year we lost between 15 and 20 per cent and this year it will be more.
“But honestly, at PSG, there is the capacity and the means to overcome the crisis. The other clubs will perhaps have more difficulty to overcome the crisis. But the ambition here is always enormous.”
PSG are looking forward to sealing a deal for Kylian Mbappe and Neymar as they hope to perform better than a second-place finish in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions.
