  • Messi reportedly threatened to leave PSG if the club signed Ronaldo.
Seeking to find a new club, Cristiano Ronaldo is once again talking about him. Although he only joined Manchester United last season, the Portuguese is looking for a new project that could help him fight for major titles. As the search for Ronaldo continues, Lionel Messi makes sure his great rival’s new club is not Paris Saint Germain.

PSG have been linked with Ronaldo in the past. However, the 37-year-old always preferred a different project for himself than what the French giants offered. Although there is nothing concrete linking Ronaldo to PSG this season, Messi could have played a role in preventing PSG from approaching Ronaldo.

According to a report El NacionalMessi has threatened PSG bosses that he would leave the club if they sign Ronaldo from Manchester United.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes meets Barcelona president Joan Laporta amid Man Utd exit talks: report

While it’s undeniable that football fans around the world would love to see Messi and Ronaldo play in the same team, such a situation is not something the Argentine welcomes.

With Neymar Jr. should leave PSG this summer, the club will have a vacant place in the top three. Theoretically, Ronaldo is a perfect fit for PSG as he can play as both a No.9 and on the left wing, Messi seems to have his reasons for not wanting such a move to take place.

Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has offered his client to several clubs, including Bayern Munich and Chelsea. No such talks have been reported between PSG and Mendes yet.

From a sporting perspective, Ronaldo’s possible move to Paris could help the club elevate their status even further. Be it sponsorships, ticket sales and even sports projects will get a big boost.

Although there is still time before the summer transfer window closes, Ronaldo’s move to PSG cannot be completely ruled out. However, the club would have to convince Messi of the move first as the prospect of losing the Argentine isn’t something the bosses would relish either.
