Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is not likely to find himself on Paris Saint-Germain’s shopping list this summer.

Ronaldo hasn’t had it easy since returning to Old Trafford, with inconsistency plaguing Ralph Rangnick’s men.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus star has managed a respectable nine Premier League goals, but that return is way below the standards he has set during his career so far.

Ronaldo has managed just one goal in his last six Premier League outings, scoring during the week, and some transfer rumours have linked him with PSG.

The French giants could lose Kylian Mbappe this summer, with the French superstar out of contract after this season.

And it has been suggested that Ronaldo could be eyed by PSG, but there are two reasons, in particular, why that won’t happen.

According to transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, one of those is Lionel Messi.

“I don’t think Messi wants to play with Ronaldo, and Ronaldo wants to play with Messi,” he told Wettfreunde.

"I don’t think PSG want the couple to play together, because the relationship between the two isn’t great. I don’t think the two want to play together and the club wants to have them together.

"I really don’t think it can happen, but surprises in football transfers are everywhere, but I don’t think that (it will happen).

“Commercially yes of course. If you have Cristiano Ronaldo in your team, it’s like a blank cheque, it’s commercially perfect.”

Speaking about who PSG might target, DiMarzio has claimed it could be Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland, who has also been linked with United.

“I think Mbappe will go to Real Madrid, and PSG will try for (Erling) Haaland or some other young talented player like him to have the right replacement for Mbappe,” he added.

That’s good news for United, - or at least the Ronald part - but in the meantime, they will have to get the best out of Ronaldo, and it appears as though getting the right full-time managerial appointment will be a good start.
