Should the France whizz state his intention to snub a new contract, PSG may be forced to sell this summer.
With Neymar only recently signing a new deal, club bosses are keen to partner him with another superstar.
And PSG chiefs see Ronaldo as the man to lead the line in Mbappe’s absence.
That could see PSG sell Mbappe to long-term suitors Real Madrid, while using Mauro Icardi as part of a player-plus-cash deal for Ronaldo.
The Bianconeri have long been keen on Icardi, with the Argentine’s former club, Inter Milan, even believed to have tried to add an ‘anti-Juventus’ clause in the deal that saw him head to the French capital.
Whatever happens this summer, it appears much hinges on the future of wantaway Ronaldo.
And new Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti could throw a spanner in the works after admitting his love for Ronaldo.
After being unveiled as Zinedine Zidane’s replacement, Ancelotti said: “I’ve a great relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, I love him…
“But it’s not correct to talk about Cristiano as he’s under contract with Juventus.”
