Barcelona have reportedly made contact with Cristiano Ronaldo with the Nou Camp side eyeing a stunning move in the summer transfer window.
Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have all been linked with moves for the Portuguese superstar, but a shocking new contender has now emerged.
That contender is Barcelona, but despite the animosity between Barca and Madrid, AS report that the Catalan club are sizing up a move for Ronaldo.
According to the report, club president Joan Laporta has already contacted Ronaldo over a move to the Nou Camp.
While it is stated that the 36-year-old is yet to respond to Laporta, the Barca chief ‘dreams’ of seeing Ronaldo line up alongside Lionel Messi.
A new contract for Messi is said to be “practically tied up”, with Laporta now turning his attention to adding a second superstar to Ronald Koeman’s squad.
Ronaldo’s thoughts on such a move are unknown, with his agent Jorge Mendes yet to be brought into the discussions.
According to AS, it is expected they will offer Antoine Griezmann, Sergi Roberto and Phillipe Coutinho to Juve in exchange for Ronaldo.
