Amid all the action at Euro 2020 and the Copa America, the summer transfer window has opened, with Europe’s biggest clubs looking to make a splash in the transfer market.

Paris Saint Germain have been hard at work this transfer window, having brought in former Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, ex-Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum (both on free transfers) and Inter Milan full-back Achraf Hakimi for €70m.

In addition, it is expected that AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma will complete his own free transfer to Parc des Princes after he plays for Italy in Sunday’s Euro 2020 final against England (LIVE on ESPN/ESPN+ at 3 p.m. ET in the U.S.).

This has caught the attention of fans and journalists across the world, as well as — according to Foot Mercato — Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo.

There have been various reports about the future of the Juventus man, who is currently the joint-top scorer at Euro 2020 with five goals. With just one year remaining on his contract, it seems as though the 36-year-old’s future could lie away from Juventus — especially as the club won’t stand in the forward’s way if he wants to leave. It is the presence of Ramos and fellow former Madridistas, Keylor Navas and Angel Di Maria, that is also making him lean towards a move to PSG.

This could be one that plays out for some time though, as Ronaldo is on holiday and in no rush to sort out his future at this stage. Instead, he wants to wait to see what new Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has to say about him, as there have not yet been any concrete contract negotiations — though Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes could meet with them in the coming days.

Meanwhile, it is suggested there have already been some discussions between Mendes and PSG with an eye to bringing one of the world’s greatest players to Paris.
