The clock is ticking down to the end of Cristiano Ronaldo’s second missionary journey to Manchester United.
Next month when new helmsman, Erik ten Hag takes charge, Ronaldo will not be part of his plans. His possible departure has opened doors for him to join his eternal rival, Lionel Messi, at Paris Saint-Germain.
According to Mirror, Ronaldo has been tipped to form a mouth-watering partnership with Messi at PSG.
The superstar’s future at Manchester United is uncertain ahead of Erik ten Hag’s arrival as their new permanent manager and
Paul Merson reckons PSG could swoop in as they aim to finally win the Champions League.
Despite sensationally signing Messi last summer, PSG has been unable to win Europe’s top prize this season.
Kylian Mbappe looks set to leave for Real Madrid on free transfer in June.
As a result Merson has put forward Ronaldo as a short-term replacement and “proven asset” in the Champions League.
“This might be Cristiano Ronaldo’s last year in the Premier League. He’ll want to play in the Champions League – he’s played in it all his career,” the Arsenal legend told Sportskeeda.
“I’d be surprised if Erik ten Hag wants him there to be honest – he’s trying to build his team, and Ronaldo is 37 years old.
PSG could go for him and make him their short-term replacement for Kylian Mbappe. PSG only want one thing – the Champions League.
Ronaldo is a proven asset in the competition – he’s scored goals, he sells shirts, he’s done it all.
“Ligue 1 is an easy league, and Ronaldo will be able to focus on the Champions League at PSG. With Lionel Messi already at the club, we may well see two of the greatest players of all time playing for the same team.
