Real Madrid president Perez learned of Ronaldo 'I want PSG' text: You can leave if...

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo told friends he was ready to join PSG in 2012, it has been revealed.

Before last night's Champions League win, France Football reported a text message Ronaldo sent to a confidant back in 2012 about his hope of joining PSG.

"I want to go to Paris and I will be truly appreciated, the French will be happy to have me in their league and the media will campaign in my favor to win the Ballon d'Or," read the alleged text.

It's claimed Real president Florentino was aware of the text and challenged Ronaldo at the time.

"You tell me this when the transfer window is closed?" it's claimed Perez said to Ronaldo. "You find me a club that puts € 200 million on the table. With this money I can pay the termination clause of (Lionel) Messi and put him in your place!"
