The Parisian club supposedly still have an ambitious wishlist after putting in much effort to strengthen their team ahead of 2021-21.

Uncertainty continues to surround the future of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been tipped to quit Juventus ever since their 2020-21 Champions League elimination.

It is not just sporting reasons, though, that seems to be driving Ronaldo away from Juventus, with economic factors also understood to be creating friction between the two parties.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner alone is expected to cost the club a reported €31 million just in wages over the course of the next year, and the Turin-based side might not be able to afford it in times of financial crisis.

Paris Saint-Germain has been touted as the next destination for the Portugal captain, with previous reports even claiming the Ligue 1 champions have initiated talks with his agent Jorge Mendes over a possible transfer this summer.

Now, PSG have immense firepower as it is, with the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Mauro Icardi, Moise Kean, and Angel Di Maria as their attacking options, and Ronaldo’s arrival would make it an even worse nightmare for opponents to defend against them.

The Parisian club have already picked up midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma on free transfers this summer. They are also on the verge of signing Real Madrid legend Sergio Ramos and Inter Milan full-back Achraf Hakimi.

With a star-studded squad already at their disposal, here’s how PSG could line up in the coming season:
