Paris Saint-Germain have rubbished reports that they have made a €120 million bid for Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
Several media outlets in the Middle East claimed on Saturday that the French champions, who are owned by Qatar Sports Investments, had lodged a world-record offer for the Portugal international.
However, the advisory team of PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has denied making any formal move for Ronaldo.
“It is quite untrue,” a group spokesman is quoted as saying by MARCA.
Ronaldo is under contract to Madrid until 2018 but there has been constant speculation about his future at the Santiago Bernabeu, not least following the sacking of popular head coach Carlo Ancelotti at the end of last season.
The 30-year-old has been linked with a return to Manchester United for years, but there has long been talk of the forward moving to PSG.
Such speculation decreased because of the restrictions imposed upon the Ligue 1 champions for breaching Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations but a softening of the rules has led many pundits to predict another spending spree in the French capital.
However, according to reports in Spain, PSG – who have a good relationship with Madrid – do not intend to move for Ronaldo at this point in time.
Indeed, the French titleholders are currently on the verge of signing Argentina winger Angel Di Maria from Old Trafford, with the deal set to be completed in the coming days.
