Cristiano Ronaldo has made a decision about his future. After the hard blow after the loss of one of their children, the family wants to start a new life outside of Manchester.
One of the destinations that takes the most strength to become the new Portuguese team is Paris Saint-Germain. Al-Khelaïfi goes with everything to get the signing of the Portuguese and leaves the number 7 number reserved for him.
This is the number that Kylian Mbappé currently wears. The ‘jewel of French football‘ has everything ready to pack this summer and head to Madrid.
with this output The PSG board is in a hurry to find a quality scoring striker and Al-Khelaïfi has thought of Cristiano Ronaldo, who is also looking for a team and is willing to accept a significant salary reduction to leave Old Trafford.
The Portuguese positively values the option of landing in Paris. The end of his career is very close and He wants to say goodbye to the pitch with a team that allows him to play in what could be his last Champions League.
With Manchester United this is impossible. They have not qualified for the next competition and this, added to the desire to start a new life, has been a fundamental factor in deciding to leave the city.
Initially there was speculation with a possible return to Real Madrid if Mbappé did not finally arrive. Now this seems increasingly difficult, since the Frenchman would be finalizing the details for his arrival at the Santiago Bernabéu.
Faced with this situation, PSG’s option has gained strength, which would have already decided leave the ‘7’ reserved for him if he decides to sign for the club. This is the number that Mbappé would leave free after leaving for the Spanish capital.
In the Parc des Princes you could meet again with Zinedine Zidanewith whom he has a very good relationship after his time at Real Madrid.
In addition, the Frenchman has requested his signing as express condition for the signing of his contract as coach and successor to Mauricio Pochettino.
Al-Khelaïfi is clear that he wants Mbappé’s successor to be Cristiano Ronaldo and He would be willing to pay the 20 million euros that Manchester United are asking for.
What consequences would the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo have?
His arrival at the Parc des Princes would have consequences for one of the players who aims to lead the Al-Khelaïfi project for next season.
This is Leo Messi, who has threatened to leave the team if the Portuguese ends up signing for the club. He refuses to share a dressing room with the Portuguese, much less the leadership.
The Argentine was seeing how his situation at PSG was improving little by little. With the brain drain that the Parc des Princes will experience, Messi aims to be the only one from the Argentine clan who would remain in the team.
Besides, Mbappé’s departure would allow him to be the head of the team. This was confirmed by the board, assuring his interest in having one more year with the player.
Now Al-Khelaïfi’s plans have not changed, Messi will continue to be the leader if everything works as before, but this position could have to share it with Cristiano Ronaldo if his signing becomes a reality.
Who would not affect his hiring would be Ousmane Dembéléwho is in advanced talks with PSG to close his transfer, although Barça continues to insist on closing the operation.
