Crazy Ball – The photo above may be Cristiano Ronaldo's last smile on Kylian Mbappe after rumors surfaced that Juventus might swap the 35-year-old Portugal star for the young PSG 21-year-old striker. Ronaldo will feel betrayed by Mbappe.
Kylian Mbappe, the player born in Paris 21 years ago, has become the hottest commodity at the moment, two years before his contract at PSG ended. Real Madrid have reportedly included the name of the former AS Monaco player as one of their transfer targets for the summer of 2021. Los Blancos have also been saving since 2020 by not buying any new players.
But Juventus under new coach Andrea Pirlo are also targeting the star who has scored 69 goals for PSG in the last two seasons in all competitions. As a report appeared in England, a bid of IDR 6.8 trillion will be submitted to PSG to tempt the French League champions club to release the player.
As a sweetener, Andrea Pirlo is said to be including Cristiano Ronaldo in their offer. It is believed that PSG CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi will be very tempted to get the Portuguese star in their quest to reach the Champions League trophy they almost got at the end of the 2019/2020 season.
For Juventus, the report says, they do not have sufficient financial capacity to pay the salaries of Kylian Mbappe and Ronaldo at the same time. So one of them has to be removed. With Mbappe still 22 and CR7 turning 36 next season, it's clear what option Pirlo has chosen.
The good news for Ronaldo's supporters is that it is highly unlikely that the deal will be reached. PSG will never be willing to let go of the young French star who has proven to play an important role in Paris Saint-Germain's success so far, even though he only finished second in the title race for the big earliest trophy in the Champions League last season. Moreover, PSG must imagine paying CR7 a salary of Rp.10.25 billion per week.
Mbappe is predicted to leave PSG in the summer of 2021 with Real Madrid being the club's most favorite destination. In the past, the 22-year-old player has expressed his desire to join Los Blancos and he is reportedly willing to cut his 10.5 billion rupiah per week salary cut in order to fulfill his dream of moving to the Bernabeu.
