An unbelievable trade deal involving two superstars in Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar is apparently being considered by Juventus.

The Serie A champions plan to offer Paris Saint-Germain a chance to sign Cristiano Ronaldo in exchange for Neymar.

As incredible as it may seem, a deal is apparently possible. Both players will be out of contract in 2022, and renewals seem unlikely. TuttoMercatoWeb, therefore, claims Juve plan to make a stunning proposition to PSG.

Reports came out earlier this week stating the Bianconeri plan to offload Ronaldo next summer. As he will be 37 by time his current deal expires, they apparently don’t plan to offer him an extension.

So the plan, if rumor is to be believed of course, is that they may sell their star player at the end of the season before he can walk out of Turin as a free agent.

PSG sporting director Leonardo, meanwhile, has also refused to rule out a bid for Ronaldo. But while his interest in the Portuguese superstar is a no-brainer, would he be prepared to bid farewell to Neymar?

And if Ronaldo doesn’t end up at PSG, where else could he go after Juventus?

It’s not like he’s short of possibilities after all.
