Cristiano Ronaldo who joined Juventus in 2018 reportedly considered an exit from the Italian club with the hopes of playing alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at French giants Paris Saint-Germain.

Since joining the Old Lady, the Portuguese striker has won successive Serie A titles, but it has been reported that the 35-year-old considered joining PSG.

The lockdown has been blamed for halting the move and according to France Football, Ronaldo was underwhelmed by Juventus' performances and was therefore weighing up his options.

During his time at Real Madrid, Ronaldo dreamed of playing alongside Neymar as it is believed that the duo maintains a close relationship.

It was also gathered that CR7 adores France World Cup winner Mbappe and would not mind linking up with the pair in Paris.

Paris also holds a special place in Ronaldo's heart as it is the city where he won the European Championships with Portugal in 2016.

The 35-year-old has continued to defy age as he has now scored 52 goals in 64 Serie A games since he completed his £88 million from Real Madrid to Turin in 2018.

He has been linked to several clubs as there are concerns that there exists a rift between the Portuguese sensation and manager Maurizio Sarri.

He wrote on Instagram: "Happy to win the last two of the nine Serie A consecutive titles for Juventus! It seems easy, but it isn't!

"Year after year with talent, dedication and hard work you can achieve your goals and be better than before! Let’s go for my third.”
