Paris St Germain have distanced themselves from making a move for Real Madrid main man Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese skipper let the world know last weekend that he was unhappy but didn’t feel it was right to display his feelings as he would be unprofessional.
Reports suggested that he had held a meeting with club president Florentino Perez, in which he stated he didn’t feel he had the support from the rest of the squad and that he was unhappy and he wanted to leave. The reports are not confirmed as true, but the 27 year old then later said via his twitter account; “That I am feeling sad and have expressed this sadness has created a huge stir, I am accused of wanting more money, but one day it will be shown that this is not the case.”
PSG sporting director Leonardo revealed that the club was not currently looking at Ronaldo, however he didn’t also rule out any potential move in the near future. Leonardo told radio station RMC; “We’re very happy with our transfer market dealings, Many things are said about PSG – too many, maybe. Ronaldo is a Real Madrid player. We don’t talk about others teams’ players – that’s respect.”
Leonardo went on to say that he believes summer signing Zlatlan Imbrahimovic is the best striker in the world;
“Ibrahimovic is the best striker in the world. So why hire Ronaldo? Zlatan is unique. When we talk about the best players, there is Ronaldo and (Lionel) Messi – but they are not strikers. The best striker, that’s Zlatan.”
So if Ronaldo’s issue continues then expect some interest from PSG, as Leonardo didn’t rule out a move for the superstar who has scored 151 goals for Real Madrid, since his move in 2009.
