Cristiano Ronaldo's agent 'offers wantaway Man Utd star to PSG.. but French club REJECT chance for Lionel Messi link-up' | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED'S wantaway star Cristiano Ronaldo was offered to Paris Saint-Germain but they rejected him, reports suggest.
That is according to Le Parisien, who report that Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes gave PSG the chance to sign his client but they said no.
The French champions reportedly have no space in their squad for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner and thus a dream pair-up with Lionel Messi is off the cards.
The star forward has expressed his desire to leave Old Trafford this summer as he wishes to play in the Champions League next season.
The Portugal captain hasn't joined United for pre-season due to family reasons.
However, the Manchester giants are not keen to sell the 37-year-old, who still has a year left on his contract.
