Ancelotti: PSG Don't Need Ronaldo

PSG manager Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out bidding for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Real Madrid ace has been linked to a big money move to the Ligue 1 hopefuls ever since he said he was “sad” earlier in the season.

Qatari-owned PSG are one of the few clubs that can afford to bid for Ronaldo and pay him his extravagant wages, and are ambitious enough to make the thought of CR7 turning out in their kit believable.

However, Ancelotti insists that Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic gives PSG all the fire power they need.

And furthermore, the club does not intend to sign any more players during the January transfer window.

"Can Zlatan and Ronaldo can play together? All quality players can play together. You know, it’s not hard to manage a guy like Ibrahimovic. Ronaldo is a fantastic player, but today, I do not think of him," Ancelotti told RMC when asked to discuss the Ronaldo rumours.

"Nene and [Guillaume] Hoarau are gone, they won’t be replaced because the team is good. We don’t have to buy. The transfer window is closed for us."

Meanwhile, Ancelotti has admitted that he is under real pressure to win the French league crown this season.

The Italian admits that if PSG do not win, he will have ‘failed.’

 "We have to be champions. We clearly have the qualities to win. It all depends on the coach. If the manager does his job, then PSG is going to win," Ancelotti said.

"If we do not win it? Yes, it will clearly be a failure. The Champions league is harder."
