PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are preparing an audacious player-swap move in a bid to sign Cristiano Ronaldo, according to reports.
The Portuguese superstar, 36, is edging closer to the Juventus exit door after three seasons with the Old Lady.
Juventus’ financial troubles caused by the coronavirus pandemic remain the biggest issue with Ronaldo earning £540,000-a-week.
A reported fractious relationship with boss Andrea Pirlo following a disappointing Serie A campaign is also believed to be a catalyst to Ronaldo’s exit.
Juventus were knocked out of the Champions League round of 16 to Porto and will soon concede their nine-year dominance in the league to Inter Milan.
With PSG facing the prospect of losing their biggest stars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, it appears as though Ronaldo could soon be heading to Paris.
That is according to AS who write how PSG will offer both Moise Kean and Mauro Icardi in part-exchange.
Kean is only on loan from Everton but they are expected to land him permanently in the summer before attempting to flog him to Juventus.
Icardi has found games hard to come by under Mauricio Pochettino having made just 10 league starts all season.
Ronaldo was thought to be angling for a move to Real Madrid but that appears increasingly unlikely with the Spanish side eager to land Mbappe.
Both Mbappe and Neymar could leave Paris this summer with just a year left on their contracts.
And getting their salary off the wage book will mean PSG have the cash to offer Ronaldo a lucrative deal.
