A surreal offer for Ronaldo from… Saudi Arabia!

While he wants to leave Manchester United this summer, only a year after his return to the Premier League, Cristiano Ronaldo still can’t find a place to fall, despite a slew of suitors. According to the Spanish media ASthe fivefold Ballon d’Or would even have received an offer of 300 million euros from… Saudi Arabia.

  • Our opinion : Unlikely, despite the proposed gold bridge, that CR7 draws a line under his European career. The Portuguese wants a sports project above all.

The player is precisely waiting for an appointment with the management of the club, in order to clarify his situation.

Paris has another track in attack

There are no more secrets regarding PSG’s interest in Hugo Ekitike and Gianluca Scamacca. But a third track seems to be emerging, according to Fabrizio Romano. Gonçalo Ramos, Portuguese striker (21) from Benfica is high on the list of Luis Campos, who still considers Ekitike as the priority in attack. On the other hand, Paris does not seem willing to respond favorably to the 50 million requested by Sassuolo for Scamacca.

New suitor, Tottenham is already on pole to enlist Koundé

Even as Spurs entered the race for the France international with some delay, it would be the Londoners best placed to welcome the future ex-Sevillanese, according to the Mirror. After having tried, without success, to recruit Alessandro Bastoni (Inter Milan), Antonio Conte would have set his sights on Koundé, who would no longer be among Chelsea’s priorities, while the arrival at the club of Kalidou Koulibaly is imminent.

  • Our opinion : Even if the Spurs will play the Champions League, Chelsea seems the best destination for the Frenchman.
