Zidane stays focus ahead of vital PSG game

'Well, this can be a hard question to ask or an easy one, depending on how you look at it or how I want to answer it, ' he said in his pre-match press conference.

"It would be great if he came to Real Madrid".

"We will have to play our game, try to control and stay focused when we don't have the ball".

The Madrid club posted the world's highest annual turnover for a decade until recently being overtaken by Manchester United, fuelled by the Premier League's astronomical TV rights.

Despite their last season's success when they achieved five titles, Real Madrid suffered this season on the domestic level.

"On Wednesday, it'll be another game and we'll have to apply even more desire".

Earlier this season, there were reports that Ronaldo was interviewing schools in London for his son Cristiano Jr.

"[Neymar and Ronaldo] are both quick, very strong one-on-one, they play quickly and put a lot of intensity into their games", said PSG winger Angel Di Maria, a Champions League victor alongside Ronaldo at Madrid in 2014.

PSG have been given a stern warning of their own, however, as RealMadrid coach Zinedine Zidane warned they will have to be at their best if they are to keep Cristiano Ronaldo quiet.

Rakhawy is studying at Ottawa University in Canada and will watch the game with his Arab friends, the closest he could get to watching the experience back home with his friends.

Madrid host PSG in the first leg on Wednesday and Ronaldo said: "We are going to play against a great team with excellent players, which we respect very much".

Ronaldo could reportedly move in the other direction if former Barcelona star Neymar lands in Madrid. Two strikers were behind Neanaey's love for Madrid.

4 - PSG have lost four of their last six away games in the Champions League knockout stages, winning one (2-1 v Chelsea in March 2016) and drawing one.

"We will see. Everyone knew that I wanted to sign him at some point [before he joined Barcelona from Santos]. Their defense is their weakest lines and they have the experience to cause them many troubles".

If Real can sustain another Champions League challenge and Portugal go deep into World Cup, then expect Ronaldo to be there or thereabouts again when the Goal 50 returns at the end of the calendar year. "Obviously it is the best competition, but for me the league is very important".
