It's a while off, but Paris Saint-Germain are lining up a mega move for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo next summer.

According to French newspaper L'Equipe, the French champions are looking to the Portuguese to replace current talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic - who is linked with a return to AC Milan.

The paper claims that Zlatan will stay for one more season and move when his contract runs out in July 2016, with PSG putting Ronaldo at the top of the list to replace the Swede.

The Ballon d'Or winner will turn 31 next February and PSG would be unable to complete a move this summer because of Financial Fair Play restrictions.

However, when Zlatan leaves sizable chunk of their wage bill will be clear, giving the big-spending club more than enough flexibility to make a huge offer to Ronaldo, whose contract doesn't run out until 2018.
