What about me, not Kane? Ronaldo Messi’s pride hurt to PSG
Lionel Messi’s shocking transfer to Paris Saint-Germain seems to have hurt Cristiano Ronaldo’s pride.
The Daily Mail quoted La Republica as saying on the 17th (Korea time) that Messi’s joining in PSG destroyed Ronaldo’s pride and was ready to leave Juventus to wait for contact from Real Madrid or Manchester City.
Ronaldo is angry at Messi’s transfer and wants to leave Juventus, according to the article. Ronaldo is also afraid to spend another season with Juventus. He is reluctant to talk to his teammate or to return manager Massimiliano Allegri and is eager to move on.
Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has suggested that he can take Ronaldo for just 25 million in case City fails to recruit Harry Kane, which is expected to cost more than 100 million.
However, local media predicted that Ronaldo’s move will be decided by PSG striker Killian Mbappe (23). When Mbappe, whose contract ends next year, moves to Real Madrid, Ronaldo will be able to negotiate depending on the dynamics between the clubs.
PSG is also showing interest in recruiting Ronaldo. PSG has long dreamed of combining Messi and Ronaldo. Spain’s El Chiringito believes Real can re-introduce Ronaldo. Attention is focusing on whether Ronaldo, who has lost his pride in Messi’s PSG trip, will leave Juventus.
