Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent has opened talks over a surprise transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, claims a report in France. Juventus’ elimination from the Champions League at the quarter-final stage for the second year in succession has not gone down well with Ronaldo.

That is the news via Foot Mercato, who now claims Ronaldo could be heading to Paris after two years in Turin. The French outlet is the second source to suggest Ronaldo could be moving on.

The coach is keen to ensure Lionel Messi is not left to do the job alone, however, even if he is highly likely to play a key role.

“We will have to assist Leo because both Messi, like any other outstanding player, is weaker without the strength of the team.”
