Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has expressed his admiration for Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo moved to Juventus from Real Madrid in the summer of 2018, signing a four-year contract with the reigning European champions.
The 35-year-old has been a hit in Turin, scoring 53 goals in 75 games, and his continued good form has caught the eye of Al-Khelaifi.

“Year after year, he shows a unique determination, an extraordinary strength of character,” Al-Khelaifi told France Football.
“He remains motivated by this desire to improve every day and he always pushes his limits.
“I admire this relentless will; he is a great example for all athletes of the future.”
PSG have signed some of football’s biggest names in recent years and Al-Khelaifi added that Zlatan Ibrahimovic remains one of his favourite signings.
“Thinking back to all the players who have joined us since the beginning of our ambition with PSG, I could still highlight the time of Zlatan Ibrahimovic for his character, his leadership, his charisma and his ability to get things done,” Al-Khelaifi noted.
“He was always reliable, and when the situation demanded something from him, he knew how to stand up to the challenges of the moment.”
