Cristiano Ronaldo & Lionel Messi have been linked with moves to PSG this summer, with PSG director Leonardo now weighing in on the speculations. Paris Saint-Germain sporting director has downplayed transfer rumors linking Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to PSG.
There are heated transfer speculations this week as two of the world’s biggest football stars consider their futures with current clubs.
With the look of things, Lionel Messi will be a free agent in the summer once his Barcelona contract expires on June 30. This has prompted many pundits to tip PSG, along with Manchester City to make a move, Meanwhile, Leonardo had previously openly remarked on the club’s interest, which led to criticism from the newly elected Barcelona president Joan Laporta.
So probably, that’s the reason why the PSG director carefully chose his words when discussing Messi this time around.
“Today, we are so focused, it is March, it is a decisive moment for the results of the season,” Leonardo told RMC Sport.
” We have nothing at all in relation to the future, except the idea of extending the players that we already have. There is no contract or a project for something. We are also obliged to measure what will be the financial results of this season.”
Is A Move To The French Capital On Ronaldo’s Radar?
Juve’s shock Champions League exit at the hands of Porto in the Round of 16, perhaps has poured fresh doubts on Ronaldo’s Juventus future.
The 36-year-old, who only has a year left on his current contract, has also been tipped as a potential transfer target for the French giants. However, the PSG director insists that ‘no negotiations have taken place for a new player yet.
“What makes us happy is that PSG is almost always in all files,” the PSG director said on the Ronaldo transfer rumors.
” It’s good. The transfer window is very fluid, there is some movement. PSG is very desired, in general. All the great players are linked to PSG. It is something that must be valued.”
“We are always in the position to speak with the great players, who would like to come. But we have no negotiations in progress regarding a new player.”
