Rumours that Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo is set for a record-breaking €100million move to Paris Saint Germain have been played down by the club's chairman Nasser el-Khelaifi, reports Sky Sports.

According to speculation emanating from Italy, which has since been repeated in France, the Ligue 1 giants see the Portuguese star as the next part of their ambitious project to turn PSG into European heavyweights, with a package in excess of £80million currently being pieced together.

Ronaldo hinted earlier this season that he could be lured away from the Santiago Bernabeu, after intimating that he wasn't entirely happy in the Spanish capital, prompting Real to try and secure the 27-year-old's future, by tying him down to a new long-term contract.

The former Manchester United man has since gone quiet on the subject, and PSG have now released an official response to reports they are planning a move for Ronaldo in January.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is a Real Madrid player," said El-Khelaifi. "I have not contacted his club, and no-one has contacted me about him."

It has also been claimed that PSG are keen to have Ronaldo playing under his compatriot and current boss Jose Mourinho at Parc des Princes, but El-Khelaifi failed to comment.
