Paris Saint-Germain Wants Villas-Boas: Soccer Roundup

June 12 (Bloomberg) -- the following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable links to the web.

PSG Wants Villas-Boas

Paris Saint-Germain wants Tottenham’s Andre Villas-Boas to replace Carlo Ancelotti as manager, the Daily Mail reported.

Qatar-backed PSG is one of the world’s richest clubs and Villas-Boas has emerged as the leading candidate to take over there if Ancelotti moves, as expected, to Real Madrid, the Mail added.

Ronaldo for Monaco?

Monaco may make a world-record 100 million-euro ($133 million) bid for Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, the Independent reported.

The Portuguese, who was previously at Manchester United, has two years left on his contract at Madrid and  is “disillusioned” with life thereafter four seasons, the newspaper said.

Newcastle Targets Bent

Newcastle is interested in signing Aston Villa striker Darren Bent, who is out of favor at the Midlands club, the Daily Mail reported.

He might be available for 6 million pounds ($9.4 million), although matching his current 70,000 pound-a-week deal might be difficult for Newcastle, the newspaper said.

Fabregas Stays

Cesc Fabregas has ruled out a return to the Premier League and wants to compete for a first-team spot at Barcelona, the Sun reported.

His former club Arsenal and Manchester United were ready to have a 40 million-pound battle over the midfielder, the Sun added.

Barton Payoff?

Joey Barton wants a 3.5 million-pound payoff to leave Queens Park Rangers, the Sun reported.

Barton spent last season on loan at Marseille and wants to make the move permanent. He still has two years left on a 70,000 pound-a-week deal at QPR, which was relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season.
