Cristiano Ronaldo: Talk of move to PSG played down

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."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
