French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain had an audacious £110m offer rebuffed by Real Madrid for Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, as per the Mirror.
Rumour has it in the summer that PSG could make a move to sign Ronaldo before the end of last summer’s transfer window, however, reports filtering in today is claiming the Paris outfit indeed made a bid to land the best footballer in the world.
Los Blancos did not even consider the offer for their best player as they immediately rejected it, but PSG are expected to return back next summer to launch another ambitious approach to sign Ronaldo. If Real had accepted that offer, it would have made the Portugal national team captain the most expensive footballer in the world.
Ronaldo, 30, has shown no signs of slowing down despite his age. He was able to score a whopping 48 goals in 35 La Liga matches last season. But he has so far made a slow start to the league this term, as he has failed to find the back of the net in all of Real’s opening league fixtures.
Meanwhile, PSG’s star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic could leave the Parc des Princes at the end of his contract next summer, leaving a void for Ronaldo to fill, should the former Manchester United whiz join.
It is also likely that United could join PSG in the race to land Ronaldo next summer, as the Red Devils also want the Portuguese ace to make a return to Old Trafford – where he gained prominence.
Portugal tackle Albania later tonight and Ronaldo will be looking to lead his nation to glory against the South European country.
