SEALED with a French Cris and 54million smackers – the PSG frontline to match any triple-pronged attack in history.
With Juventus reportedly removing Cristiano Ronaldo’s “non-transferable” status, Paris Saint-Germain could be dreaming of linking the five-time Ballon d’Or winner with football’s costliest ever buy, £198million Neymar, and World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe.
Apart from the piffling omission of Lionel Messi, Ronaldo’s long-time rival to the title of world’s best player, it’s an attack offering anything and everything.
And perhaps the only modern strikeforce that could compare would be Barcelona’s three-season front-three up to 2017 of Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez.
In the past campaign, 35-year-old Portugal legend Ronaldo became the fastest Serie A player in history to 50 goals, also breaking Juventus’ individual scoring record for a season, with 37 from 46 matches.
But if Juve do cash in on £54m-rated Ron, two years after his £100m arrival from Real Madrid, how would he fit into the PSG line-up?
Bear in mind, the French champions have turned Argentine hitman Mauro Icardi’s loan deal from Inter Milan into a permanent £70m deal, while club record-scorer Edinson Cavani has understandably departed.
Costa Rica superstar Keylor Navas is a firm tip to keep the No1 top, with Brazil star Marquinhos and France’s Presnel Kimpembe remaining in the middle of defence.
French Under-21 ace Colin Dagba is expected to finally tie down the regular right-back spot, Spain’s Juan Bernet marauding forward on the opposite flank.
In midfield could be Argentina’s Leandro Paredes alongside Senegal anchorman Idrissa Gueye and Italy playmaker Marco Verratti.
That leaves Neymar and Mbappe up front – with Ronaldo, if he joins, or Icardi.
Sacre bleu! Problems, problems, problems…
