Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly be looking to snap up Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo should Kylian Mbappe quits for Real Madrid next summer
Mbappe has been heavily linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu over the past 12 months.
Although Real Madrid initially planned to make a move for the highly-rated Frenchman before the transfer window opened, the coronavirus crisis has put the squeeze on the club’s finances.
Since the economic effects of the COVID-19 hampered Los Blancos’ plans for the summer, the operation ‘Mbappe’ will have to wait until the end of 2020/21.
There’s a genuine feeling that the 21-year-old will become Cristiano Ronaldo’s long-term successor in the Spanish capital.
In such a turn of events, perennial Ligue 1 champions will switch their attention towards the Portuguese superstar, according to ESPN.

Les Parisiens have already tried to bring in Cristiano Ronaldo on multiple occasions over the past year.
However, they have stumbled across two major setbacks.
First, the 35-year-old is enjoying his life at the Allianz Stadium and has no intention of leaving.
Despite his age, Ronaldo has been nothing short of outstanding since swapping Madrid for Turin in 2018. He has racked up 68 goals and 18 assists in 91 competitive outings for Juve so far.
