Former Milan and Real Madrid forward Ronaldo, wants to play for French side Paris St Germain, according to press reports.
In an interview with L’Equipe, the three-time World Footballer of the Year (1996, 1997 and 2002) stressed his eagerness to play in the French capital.
“I love Paris. I have a flat and often go there,” said the 31-year-old, who is without a professional club since being released by Milan in the summer, but is currently training with Brazilian team Flamengo.
“PSG are in the process of building something good. They have recruited good players and constructed a team capable of winning the title.”
The most prolific goalscorer in the history of the World Cup (15 goals, and twice winner) Ronaldo is recovering in Rio De Janeiro following knee surgery in February.
Despite Manchester City earlier denying reports linking him with a move to Eastlands, Ronaldo again suggested he could be linking up with compatriot Robinho in the Premier league.
“Yes, it’s a big possibility. We are in the middle of talks. We’ll see.”
That contradicted a statement from City on Tuesday that said they had been interested in signing Ronaldo but decided not to pursue his signature.
In the interview Ronaldo said he was confident of a successful comeback, but admitted he was going through a difficult recuperation period.
“This is a challenge I cannot totally control. This time I cannot have power over everything. It’s not like before when I was on the pitch and knew I could score a goal at any moment.
“Now it’s different. I control nothing.”
Speaking about criticism leveled at his weight, Ronaldo said: “It’s normal that people say I’m overweight. There’s no surprises there.
“I’ve stayed here (Rio) for five months without my trainer so there’s nothing illogical in having gained a few pounds.”
