But now Juventus could challenge Los Blancos with an eye-watering offer for the World Cup-winning Frenchman next summer.
According to Tuttosport (via ESPN), Juventus would be willing to allow Ronaldo to head to Paris as part of the deal to lure Mbappe to Turin.
The Italian newspaper claims that the 35-year-old Portuguese superstar's exit would be down to the Old Lady being 'unable to accommodate' both players.
Ronaldo, whose current deal expires in 2022, is currently on a whopping £540,000-per-week contract with Juventus.
And PSG would be the only club that would be willing to take on the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's wages should he move to Paris.
The Juventus forward had been linked with a move to PSG in the summer, with super-agent Jorge Mendes believed to have met with sporting director Leonardo over a possible deal.
Mbappe, meanwhile, is out of contract in 2022 and Juventus could face stiff competition from Madrid over the PSG superstar next summer.
Madrid legend Francisco Buyo has insisted that the France international has "already made his decision" to move to Los Blancos.
The 62-year-old Spaniard told El Chiringuito: "It looks like Liverpool are also interested, but I believe Mbappe has already made his decision [to join Madrid].
"Will it be next summer? We will see if he expects to end the contract. I do not know if he can handle the pressure or if he will accept any millionaire proposal that PSG will present to him."
