JUVENTUS star Cristiano Ronaldo could reportedly head to Paris Saint-Germain next summer in a sensational swap deal with Neymar.
The 35-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Old Lady with it said the Serie A side want to get him off the wage bill for financial reasons.

Paris Saint-Germain ace Neymar has two years left to run on his contract at Parc des Princes
Ronaldo – who has a contract in Turin until 2022 – is believed to be on around £540,000-a-week, almost four times more than the club’s next highest paid player Matthijs de Ligt.
Like the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, PSG forward Neymar – who earns over £600k-a-week in Paris – also has two year left on his contract.
And despite Neymar pocketing a considerable amount more than the Real Madrid legend, it has been claimed that Juve would be open to bringing in the Brazilian.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, PSG would have no trouble matching Ronaldo’s wage demands, while Juve wouldn’t rule out signing Neymar.
However it looks unlikely that the deal will come to fruition given how Juventus are struggling for funds amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
PSG sporting director Leonardo has talked up a move for Ronaldo should he decide to depart Italy.
He told PSGTV: “Today in football we do not know what will happen.
“Maybe tomorrow Cristiano Ronaldo wakes up and says I want to go play elsewhere.

“Who can buy him? It’s a closed circle. PSG enters this circle. Usually it is about opportunities, situations.
“The transfer window, we have to prepare for it and that’s what we do. We have our priorities, our lists, but something unforeseen can happen.”
As well as PSG, it has been reported that Manchester United are in talks over a deal to bring him back to Old Trafford.
And MLS side Inter Miami are also among the favourites to land the Portugal skipper who has scored six Serie A goals in four games this season.
