Cristiano Ronaldo 'could go to PSG in Kean and Icardi swap deal'

PSG ‘plot audacious swap move for Cristiano Ronaldo with the French club planning to sign Moise Kean and then offer him to the Serie A giants with Mauro Icardi’ as the Portugal star looks to leave Italy after three seasons

  • PSG reportedly want to sign Cristiano Ronaldo in a swap deal with two strikers
  • Reports say they want to exchange Moise Kean and Mauro Icardi for Ronaldo
  • The Ligue 1 giants would have to sign Kean from Everton first before offering him
  • Ronaldo has grown increasingly frustrated at Juventus under Andrea Pirlo

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly plotting an audacious swap move for Cristiano Ronaldo by signing Moise Kean and then offering him to Juventus along with Mauro Icardi.  

Ronaldo has once again racked up impressive numbers with 32 goals in 37 appearances this season but has grown increasingly frustrated under Andrea Pirlo.

Now it looks as if the 36-year-old and Juventus want to part ways, and AS reports that PSG could sign him in exchange for strikers Kean and Icardi.

Reports say that Paris Saint-Germain could make a bold swap move for Cristiano Ronaldo

The report states that Ronaldo was set on returning to Real Madrid but that los Blancos are more interested in highly-coveted forwards Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.

Real also have financial difficulties due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing renovation of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, which would make a dream return unlikely given Ronaldo’s wage demands.

The financial effects of the pandemic mean that few clubs seem interested in a move for an ageing Ronaldo, despite his goalscoring prowess. 

But PSG appear to be keen to sign a player of his profile and could be prepared to use Kean and Icardi as part of a deal. 

Kean started his senior career at Juventus and is on loan at PSG from Everton. He has enjoyed a fine season with 18 goals in all competitions and the French giants would have to sign him first before including him in any swap deal.

Andrea Pirlo’s side are third in Serie A and were knocked out of the Champions League last-16

Juventus have long been linked with Icardi and tried to sign him last summer before he made his PSG loan permanent. He scored 124 goals in 219 games for Inter Milan prior to moving to the French capital.  

Ronaldo’s goalscoring exploits have not slowed down since joining Juventus for £99.2million in 2018, but he has failed to conquer the Champions League with the Italian giants.    

Pirlo’s side were knocked out of the last-16 of the competition this year by unfancied Porto on away goals and their Serie A crown has also slipped.

This weekend Ronaldo was reported to have rowed with goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and punched a wall after a 3-1 win against Genoa in which he didn’t score.

Juventus are third in the Serie A table and look certain to relinquish the league title for the first time in 10 years.
