Reports from France have yet again re-surfaced the claim that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Juventus for a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Has Cristiano Ronaldo grown tired of life at Juventus? According to the latest rumors doing the rounds, it would seem so.

Just days ago, a report from France Football claimed CR7 was indeed sold out on the idea of joining Neymar and Mbappe at PSG. But for the financial impact on clubs due to the global pandemic, that report claims a move to France might have gone on smoothly.

However, there might be more to those rumors with yet another French outlet reporting on the latest situation with Ronaldo.

FootMercato claim that the Juve forward is frustrated at the lack of Champions League progress at the club and ready to try again at a different club that has traditionally struggled in this tournament.

Ronaldo made some comments after his side’s Champions League exit that appeared to put any exit rumors to bed. But this was all before Juve shocked the world after announcing Andrea Pirlo as manager.

In fact, the French outlet claim that super-star agent Jorge Mendes will meet with PSG director Leonardo during the Champions League Final Eight tournament in Portugal to discuss the options.

There might be nothing to it but PSG president Al-Khelaifi  has spoken about his admiration for Ronaldo in public on numerous occasions.

The French club have a reputation for signing some of the world’s best names and they could be tempted with a move for the 35-year-old if the opportunity arises.

Having won titles all over in England, Spain and now Italy, it’s not out of place to think that Ronaldo would fancy proving himself in yet another of Europe’s top five leagues.

In reality, PSG are just about one of the very few clubs that can also meet up with CR7’s mouth-watering weekly wages.

While the rumors continue to come in, it all contrasts with the recent comments of Juve president Andrea Agnelli who believes Ronaldo will more or less be at Juventus next season.
