Khalifa Bin Hamad Al-Thani, the brother of Paris Saint-Germain owner, Tamim bin Hamad Al Than took to social media to add further fuel to fire that Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo could join fellow rival, Lionel Messi in Paris.

Ronaldo's future at Turin has come under intense speculation, with it being reported that the player himself is keen to leave the club, and has been linked with the likes of Manchester City and a return to Spain.

Khalifa Bin Hamad Al-Thani added further fuel to fire by uploading a picture on Twitter of Messi and Ronaldo in PSG kits with the caption: 'Maybe?' - which was superimposed in several languages.

The tweet did not go down well with Lapo Elkann, a member of the Agnelli family who own Juventus by claiming that such a post was "disrespectful".

"CR7 is a Juventus FC player. It is disrespectful to continue putting other shirts on him as if he were a sticker. If he changes teams, wherever he goes, he will have respect as a man and as an athlete. For us, football is a passion for generations."

The Juventus management for their part have reiterated a number of times that they do not intend to sell Ronaldo this summer, as they see him as a big part of their squad for the foreseeable future.
