Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain have been linked with yet another superstar player, this time Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, according to a report from Goal.com. Club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi says that because of his good relationship with the Portuguese attacker, he could see himself landing the star player in France.

“I know he has two years left on his contract with Real Madrid,” Al-Khelaifi said to AS, according to Goal.com. “But I have a very good relationship with Florentino. If I want my dream of signing Cristiano to be met, I’ll call [Perez].”

Ronaldo, who has been reportedly unhappy in Madrid, has yet to comment on the potential rumor, but club president Florentino Perez says that he would not sell Ronaldo, no matter the price.

The Portugal ace featured in 34 games for the La Liga runners-up last season, scoring 34 goals while adding 10 more assists in a season that would be considered incredible for almost any other player, but is just treated as another normal year for the 28-year-old winger.

Ronaldo moved to the Bernabeu in 2009 from English giants Manchester United in an £80 million transfer, and since then has appeared in a total of 135 league games for Los Blancos, while scoring an astonishing 146 times.  The former Manchester United man is unhappy, though, and has been linked with a return to Old Trafford since the start of the summer.

PSG have already dished out almost £100 million this transfer season with the signing of Napoli’s £63 million striker Edinson Cavani, and the capture of Roma defender Marquinhos for £35 million, set to be announced in the next day or two.  A Ronaldo signing would likely push the club’s spending to a near £200 million summer, if not more.

The French outfit have also declared that unhappy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to stay despite the signing of Cavani, said Al-Khelaifi according to Goal.com.

“Ibra will stay here,” he declared. “The project will continue with him, that’s for sure.

“They question our credibility, but we have signed Cavani. Many clubs admired him. Our goal is to win the Champions League within four years.”
