Al-Khelaifi rules out Ronaldo speculations

Thu 26 August 2021 | 20:29

PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi dismisses the suggestions over Ronaldo links.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s

agent Jorge Mendes was in Paris, increasing the flame of speculations and rumors about the Portuguese superstar’s possible transfer to

Paris Saint-Germain

, but the Parisians’ chief insists that they are not negotiating over the player.

"Ronaldo? We do not have any talks open with him,"

Khelaifi told reporters at the UEFA Champions League draw on Wednesday, which saw PSG paired with another

side tipped to make a move for the ex-Real Madrid star, Manchester City


"It's the draw for the Champions League, it's the very highest level and the best competition," he added when asked about the draw, which also grouped PSG with RB Leipzig and Club Brugge.

"It's normal, if we want to go the furthest [the goal] is to win every match and work. We love this kind of match.

"Manchester City? They are one of the best clubs in the world, with a top team. But we will be ready for this match."

The other conversation around Paris Saint-Germain’s activities in the transfer market is the exit talks of

Kylian Mbappe

, who has been

Real Madrid’s

target for a long time; even the player himself has shown interest in joining the La Liga giants, but the Parisians have been refusing to let the player move away even risking losing him as a free agent next season.

"We have always been very clear on the position, and we are not going to repeat every time,"

he fired when quizzed on Mbappe.

The other side of this transfer has also been tight-lipped about the possible transfer of the French superstar.

Madrid director Emilio Butragueno told Vamos:

"I cannot say anything else that you don't know, this is the truth. We should be patient and wait. We have a very good squad and further than this, what you already know."
