Paris, Nov 27: French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain are planning a mind blowing world record £100 million bid for Portugal and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.
PSG, backed by billionaire Qatari investments, feel that they can lure Ronaldo to Paris next summer after recent hints that he is unhappy at the Bernabeu. Sources in Madrid suggest that the 27-year old superstar is 'sad' due to Real's failure to meet his wage demands, which is rumoured to be around £400,000-a-week.
The cash-rich French side are willing to pay Ronaldo that kind of money despite the excessive tax rates in France. Although Real Madrid may block any move for Ronaldo, the huge offer will be hard to turn down, beating the record transfer fee which Real paid Manchester United in 2009.
Ronaldo, who has an incredible record with Real scoring 165 goals in 164 appearances in all competitions, is a strong contender for this year's FIFA Ballon d'Or alongwith Barcelona sensation Lionel Messi.
The reigning La Liga champions have poorly this season and are currently behind league leaders and rivals Barcelona.
Several reports in September revealed that Real would consider bids of around £160 million while Manchester City were also planning a c95 million offer.
Only some of the richest clubs can offer such amount of money including players wages but PSG have joined the ranks with Manchester City and Chelsea to compete with the best.
The French have recently signed world class players with huge cheques such has Ezequiel Lavezzi for £25 million, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva for a total £45 million. The have also signed Brazilian sensation Luca Moura.
