Because of EM – top scorer with five goals – Ronaldo is allowed a long vacation. However, its future remains open. It could be a great trade deal, as L’Equipe reports. PSG wants to trade Icardi for Ronaldo in Juve. The market value of the two pros is almost the same (Icardi 40 million euros, Ronaldo 45 million euros). Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri is said to have already spoken to Icardis Entourage.
However, there are reasons why the deal did not materialize. The French would have to pay a fine if they sold it to Juve. His predecessor club, Inter, had put a clause in his 2020 transfer (50m euros), according to which another 15m euros would be paid if sold to another Italian club.
PSG would also have to deal with the rich content of CR7. Four stars have already been brought to Paris with Gini Wijnaldum (Liverpool), Achraf Hakimi (Inter), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid) and Gianluigi Donnarumma (AC Milan). Paul Pogba (Man Utd) should still be on the shopping list too.
President Nasser al-Khelaifi’s club has been targeted several times by UEFA for violating financial fair play in the past, but PSG has always avoided harsh penalties.
