Cristiano Ronaldo at PSG, with Messi and Neymar? What could appear as a mere hypothesis of fantasy football is instead a possibility of a transfer market with some solid basis of reality.
The Spanish journalist Edu Aguirre, a personal friend of CR7, has revealed the desire of the Portuguese of leave Juventus and the clubs able to afford such a player can be counted on the fingers of one hand.
CR7: Real Madrid and Manchester City, doors still open
There is a track leading to the real Madrid, where Cristiano Ronaldo would meet again Carlo Ancelotti, but if the merengues put their hand to the wallet it will probably be for a younger talent like Kylian Mbappè, intending to leave Paris precisely so as not to have to live with too many prima donnas. The Manchester City he would have the economic strength to carry out the operation, but Pep Guardiola continues to reiterate that his abjuration of the dogma of false nueve it is linked to falling in love for Harry Kane, a track that the City does not give up. The England captain is a striker with very different characteristics from those of CR7, who so far has never wanted to play the role of pure center forward.
Cristiano Ronaldo: PSG or a last year at Juve
At 36 and a half years old, Cristiano Ronaldo he could therefore remain at Juventus for the last year provided for in his contract, and then leave the agent a free hand Jorge Mendes to find him one last stage of his crazy career, without the constraints of existing contacts. Regarding the transfer to the PSG, the doubts are not in the availability of the munificent president Nasser al Khelaifi: done 30, could easily do 31 and complete the collection of figurines with the Lusitanian star. But how to do it, respecting the constraints imposed by the Financial Fair Play?
Financial Fair Play at the end of the line
To tell the truth, the rules that UEFA imposed at the beginning of the 1910s seem to have long since passed in the cavalry. He wanted to introduce it Michel Platini, to put some order in a world turned upside down by the entry of Arab sheikhs and Russian oligarchs. Uefa today led by Alexander Ceferin seems now close to the abrogation of what remains of the FPF, as has already been understood from the proposals of the “Luxury tax” he was born in “Salary cap”, the latter copied by American sports despite the obvious differences in the context. The meeting organized for September will almost certainly be the occasion in which to formalize the turning point, to the great joy of the richest clubs, starting from Manchester City And PSG, who will have less difficulty in buying who they want, at least until the Champions League they have been chasing for a decade, with the arrival of the new and very rich foreign owners.
Super league rejected, but his proposals are resumed
May the man of destiny be Cristiano Ronaldo or the next talent that will rise to international glory, basically changes little. Perhaps more relevant is the fact that this takes place on the eve of the world championship organized in Qatar from November to December 2022, an event born from the weight of the petrodollars and destined to perhaps definitively revolutionize the balloon liturgy that we have known in over a century of history. And, perhaps, in an even more radical way than the Super League project that Ceferin and Uefa have opposed so much in recent months. The clash with the “rebel” clubs has reached peaks of very high tension and it is really curious that now we are thinking of introducing two new rules (“Luxury tax” And “Salary cap”, in fact) that were part of the package of innovations proposed by the reviled Superlega.
