PSG powerbrokers Al-Khelaifi and Leonardo go for unsettled Juventus star Ronaldo

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is ready to test Juventus' resolve for Cristiano Ronaldo.

After Juve's shock Champions League elimination on Friday night, it's been claimed Ronaldo is considering his options after two seasons in Turin.

Foot Mercato says PSG sporting director Leonardo has spoken with super agent Jorge Mendes about his client's intentions and made it clear they're keen to bring him to Paris for next season.

And RAI Sport says Leonardo's move has the 100 per cent support of Al-Khelaifi. There's a genuine belief inside PSG that Ronaldo can be tempted away with Juve in so much flux.

The Bianconeri will begin preseason with rookie coach Andrea Pirlo after the dismissal of Maurizio Sarri on Saturday. A situation which is unlikely to help Ronaldo's quest to win one final Champions League title.
