The latest report we’re getting from a reliable source says that Kylian Mbappe’s exit could trigger PSG’s option to go after Cristiano Ronaldo. It has appeared that PSG wants Ronaldo as Kylian Mbappe’s replacement if the youngster ends up leaving the French capital.
Like we all know, the Frenchman is recently asking for a considerable salary increase that the club simply can’t afford to offer him right now. With Neymar already on that type of payroll, PSG can’t have two players earning that much with the state of the economic crisis in the world today. Thus, the French giants want to secure a world-class player to arrive in case Kylian Mbappe ends up leaving, plus Lionel Messi proving difficult to get as the days go by
As a result, Cristiano Ronaldo becomes the only viable option for PSG according to Le Parisien. You should know how reliable this news is because this newspaper is basically owned by Paris Saint-Germain. Meanwhile, clubs such as Inter Miami are already trying to sign Ronaldo for the near future, but it’s obvious that the Portuguese’s major goal is to keep winning the Champions League. And PSG is one of the few clubs that can still give him that possibility.
What Needs To Happen If PSG Wants Ronaldo As Kylian Mbappe’s Replacement
If really that PSG wants Ronaldo as Kylian Mbappe’s replacement, first, Real Madrid needs to make a serious offer that will tempt PSG to let go of one of their most prized assets. Although before the pandemic, Paris Saint-Germain wouldn’t have accepted anything less than €250 million for one of their best players. But with the situation in the football and world economy, they might as well consider accepting the same amount they paid for him back in 2017 now, which is €180 million.
Obviously the prodigy might be worth more than that but PSG also needs to think about keeping a good relationship with Los Blancos for the future. Moreover, Cristiano Ronaldo would get there for free and his salary expectations would be easy to cover.
And don’t forget, we’re talking about one of the best footballers in the world and one of the best in the history of football. Hence, if Cristiano Ronaldo should head for the French Ligue 1, it would be fantastic news not only for French Football but also for Europe as a whole!
