All of the day's important transfer news, updates and rumours involving Paris Saint-Germain
Ronaldo wants to leave Real Madrid
Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest players to play the game. He is a cult hero at the Bernabeu. But according to reports, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner might decide to leave Madrid this month.
The 32-year-old is having a disappointing season where he has only scored 4 goals in the league and he wants to make a fresh start. Ronaldo is still one of the best players in the world, and many clubs would be vying for his signature.
According to the Spanish website El Confidencial, PSG are favourites to sign him and Ronaldo can make a move to the French capital this month.
Neymar looking for house in Madrid
Neymar joined PSG in the summer transfer window for a world record fee of €222 million. There have been rumours that Neymar wants to come back to La Liga with Real Madrid as he is not enjoying life in Paris.
PSG have money but they lack the history of a club like Real Madrid. Don Balon has reported that Neymar has already found a house in Madrid. His house is near fellow Brazilian Marcelo who plays at left back for Real Madrid. It has been reported that Real Madrid are ready to axe some big names to clear space and to ready the funds for Neymar's move.
PSG joins chase to sign Sessegnon
Ryan Sessegnon is one of the best players in the championship. His performances for Fulham have caught the interest of top Premier League clubs. Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have shown their interest in signing the 17-year-old left back.
According to Mirror, PSG have joined the race to sign the Fulham wonderkid. Ryan Sessegnon's form in the Championship this season will only increase his value. Real Madrid and Manchester are also keeping tabs on the progress of the defender but PSG also have the financial muscle to get their man.
Inter Milan can't afford Javier Pastore
Javier Pastore has failed to get regular time at PSG, so he is looking to make a move away from the club. He was constantly linked to Inter Milan who need a player like him. But the Inter Milan manager has admitted that they can't afford to sign the Argentine.
Luciano Spalleti said that to buy players like Mkhitaryan and Pastore club needs €30-40 million, which is not possible for them.
"Mkhitaryan, [Javier] Pastore and then... you see? You need €30-40 million to buy them. We don't have it. It's no use beating about the bush -- I've been told that we can't spend €40m, so there's no point even talking about it." Spalleti said, as quoted by the ESPN
