The Parisians are regarded as perhaps the only club financially capable of luring Portuguese star Ronaldo away from the Bernabeu, while speculation over compatriot and manager Mourinho’s future has led to him being linked as well.

But when quizzed on the two, Al-Khelaifi said that if the Ligue 1 side were to make a serious enquiry over the availability of either, they would speak to president Florentino Perez first.

“Ronaldo plays for Real Madrid. I respect Real Madrid and his president a lot,” Al-Khelafi said.

“So if I want Cristiano Ronaldo to join PSG, I’ll call him before anything else.”

The PSG supremo was even more adamant that ‘The Special One’ would not be replacing Carlo Ancelotti at the helm any time soon.

He said: “I think Mourinho clarified his situation with Real Madrid. He said he would leave only after winning the Champions League.

“We have currently Carlo Ancelotti and I totally trust him. So it’s not on the agenda.”
