The Real Madrid superstar has long been linked with a move to the French capital, along with the Chelsea manager, and David Ginola believes the pair will both move to Ligue 1
Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho will both join Paris Saint-Germain, according to former France international David Ginola.
Ronaldo’s future has been the subject of intense scrutiny in recent months, with reports over the weekend suggesting that Real Madrid could be willing to sell the Portugal international.
PSG have long been mooted as potential suitors for Ronaldo, given their considerable financial muscle, and Ginola believes that the 30-year-old will join the club this summer, as he “needs a new challenge”.
“I see Ronaldo being in Paris next year,” he told BT Sport.
“Because they have the money and in terms of the challenge to win the Champions League.
“I know the Qatari investors would like to have Ronaldo at the club, no matter how much it will cost, they will pay for it.”
Goal understands that, despite Chelsea’s abysmal start to the season, Mourinho leads a shortlist of potential replacements for current manager Laurent Blanc – along with Pep Guardiola and Arsene Wenger – and Ginola believes that the Portuguese would be tempted by a move to France.
Ronaldo’s countryman held discussions with the Ligue 1 side two years prior to Blanc’s appointment and Ginola added: “I can also see Mourinho as the next manager of the team. So I think there’s going to be a lot of Portuguese in Paris.”
