Paris St Germain chairman Nasser el-Khelaifi has sought to play down rumours linking his club with a record-breaking approach for Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

Speculation in Italy, which has since been repeated in France, has suggested that PSG see Ronaldo as the next part of their ambitious project - with a €100million (£80.3m) package being pieced together.

It has also been claimed that PSG are keen to have Ronaldo playing under his Real boss Jose Mourinho at Parc des Princes.

Ronaldo hinted earlier in the season that he could be lured away from the Bernabeu, claiming that he was not entirely happy in the Spanish capital.

Real are, however, in the process of trying to tie him down on fresh terms.

Ronaldo has gone quiet on the matter for the time being, and PSG have now offered an official response to the reports that they could make a move in January.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is a Real Madrid player," said El-Khelaifi.

"I have not contacted his club, and no-one has contacted me about him."

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.

onfirmed. Nick Miller is a douche bag. Lazy, incoherent rant is what this article should be titled. And for the editor to have the temerity to pass this as acceptable writing is shocking. Ah well, anything for clicks right? You got mine. Well done. Your mother must be proud.
