Not many clubs could afford a deal for the 33-year-old, who became the first player to lift five Champions League trophies on the weekend, but PSG are understood to be the first side to have informed Los Blancos of their interest.
According to AS, Les Parisiens have told Real they are ready to sign Ronaldo in this window because club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is keen to complete his "dream" attacking trio of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and the Portugal captain.
The French giants are believed to be prepared to offer €150 million (R1.68 billion) for Ronaldo, although his release clause is set at €1 billion (R14.6 billion). In addition, PSG would also be prepared to offer the superstar a net annual salary of €45 million (R656 million) to bring him more in line with FC Barcelona star Messi's yearly package.
However, AS highlighted two possible obstacles to the deal, namely Real's bosses being keen to lure Neymar to the Santiago Bernabeu, and financial fair play restrictions.
