According to the newspaper article,
"Villas-Boas is happy in north London but remains an ambitious coach who would be keen to listen to PSG's Qatari owners, who have plans to make the French club one of the most powerful in Europe.
On most occasions, Real Madrid gets what they want, at any price.
Recently re-elected club President Florentino Perez has agreed to pay Paris Saint-Germain more than $5.2 million to buy out manager Carlo Ancelotti from the final year of his contract, according to reports out of France.
Last week we heard that Monaco, who have just been promoted back to the first division in France, after being down below for two seasons, were after Hatem Ben Arfa, and now there is a report today that Paris Saint Germain want Yohan Cabaye.

David Moyes has just begun his term as Manchester United manager, but it's becoming clearer and clearer that he'll have to start next season without Wayne Rooney.
The former Everton youth graduate has been linked with a transfer to French club Paris Saint-Germain, and according to reports in England, PSG told Rooney's representatives that they would be willing to match his wages if he agrees a transfer to France.
Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo for most of the season and they are preparing a mammoth offer for him with the hope of hijacking his move to back to Manchester United.
According to 'L'Equipe', PSG will offer Real Madrid €100m for the striker and that the French Champions will offer a salary that would make him the second best paid footballer in the world, only behind Samuel Et'oo.

The 27-year-old Poland international has been an integral part of Borussia Dortmund' side this season. Jeremy Wilson of The Telegraph reports that Arsene Wenger has requested several reports on Piszczek in the past few months, indicating that there is some interest in seeing the right-back at Arsenal if Sagna were to leave this summer.
There was a changing of the guard in France at the weekend, as Paris Saint-Germain have won their first Ligue 1 title in 19 years after Sunday's 1-0 victory at the home of Lyon, for so long the dominant force in France.

Manchester United are a club in transition after Sir Alex Ferguson's revelation that he will step down from his role as the club's manager after 26 years at the helm. With David Moyes seemingly the favourite to replace him, and Jose Mourinho in the running too, the new head coach's first job may well be to convince star striker Wayne Rooney that his future lies at Old Trafford.
French newspaper Le Parisien is reporting that Arsene Wenger is scheduled to meet with Paris Saint-Germain owners next week, while current PSG manager looks likely to replace Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.
When Wenger was asked about the French rumors recently, here's what he said:
"First of all I don't know too much about what's been said about me.

Financial Fair Play? What is that? That appears to be the attitude of Paris Saint-Germain director of football Leonardo who says that his club will buy big again this summer.
PSG is closing in on its first Ligue 1 title in 19 years and after an impressive Champions League run, further spending is expected this summer from the club's Qatari owners ahead of another assault on the Champions League next season.

Friday's Champions League semifinal draw will have been particularly pleasurable for those symmetrically inclined.
The 2011-12 Bundesliga winners (Borussia Dortmund) are taking on the same season's La Liga champions (Real Madrid) in one match, with each division's runners-up (Bayern Munich and Real Madrid respectively) of that campaign contesting the other.
It's been nearly two and a half months since David Beckham signed with PSG and immediately announced that his entire, reportedly massive salary would be donated to a Paris children's charity. That detail became the primary focus of the Beckham-gazing world (also known as "the world") with some lauding the generous act and others assuming a variety of nefarious motives.
Liverpool transfer target Lucas Digne has played down rumours of a move away from Lille. The 19-year-old full-back has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain in his homeland, and admits he's flattered to be on the radar of the Ligue 1 champions. However, he's dismissed the transfer talk as nothing more than gossip, and insists he's focused on producing his best for Les Bleus in the U20 World Cup.
Brendan Rodgers is keen on a summer move for Manchester City defender Micah Richards. Liverpool has made an enquiry and are among a clutch of clubs who are interested in signing 24-year-old Richards.

In the U.S., the soccer season has barely begun. But over in Europe, most countries are 6-8 weeks away from the end of the season – and the title race has more or less been decided in each of the big leagues.
Juventus are now only a point away from retaining their Serie A title after a weekend of games in which Paris Saint-Germain maintained their nine-point lead in France. The finish line remains in sight for FC Barcelona as well despite a draw on Saturday, while German champions Bayern Munich set a new points record in the Bundesliga.
Barcelona midfielder Lionel Messi has been declared fit from his hamstring injury suffered in the first-leg of the Champions League quarterfinals against Paris Saint-Germain. The Argentine was left out of last Saturday's win for Barcelona against Zaragoza, allowing him extra time to recover.
Injury or not, don't rule out Lionel Messi for the upcoming Champions League semifinals.
The Argentine came on in the 62nd minute of Barcelona's 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday and had an instant impact on the match. His status for the match was a doubt in the first place because of a hamstring injury the week before, but Messi said that it was worth the risk to play.
Wayne Rooney could be calling London home as soon as this summer.
The England forward submitted a transfer request to Manchester United last month, and though it was rejected, it's well known that he is looking to change clubs. One club that is interested is Arsenal, who are reportedly considering making a bid for Rooney.
Paris Saint-Germain have offered to meet Wayne Rooney's wages in an effort to convince Manchester United to part with the striker.
It's understood that PSG are willing to pay Rooney's £300,000 per week wages. The French club are interested in pairing Rooney with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Rooney is still reportedly disgruntled at the club, and the promise of a club matching his salary should push him closer to the edge of leaving the Old Trafford side.
David Beckham announced his retirement from soccer today. While he still has two matches remaining in his final chapter at Paris Saint Germain, he will long be remembered for some memorable goals scored from free kicks throughout his career.
In the video below, the free kick revolution started when Manchester United sent him on loan to Preston North End.

With little riding on their final Ligue 1 game of the season at Lorient on Sunday evening, Paris Saint-Germain rested a number of regulars, including goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu. Backup shot-stopper Alphonse Aréola started in between the sticks, but made way for Ronan Le Crom in the second half.
Despite signing for the Parisians in January 2012, Le Crom was making his first-team debut —yet he last just 21 minutes after bringing down Lorient's Lamine Gassama in the 81st minute.
One of the most decorated players in world soccer has decided to call it quits.
According to multiple reports, David Beckham has decided to announce his retirement, just days after winning his tenth league title in four different countries. The 38-year-old Englishman has made 13 appearances in all competitions for Paris Saint-Germain since signing with the club at the end of January.
Paris Saint Germain striker Ezequiel Lavezzi is said to be looking to move to either AC Milan or Inter Milan this off season.
There have been reports that both AC Milan and Inter Milan have sparked interest in Lavezzi as he could bolster the offense for both squads and that he has not ruled out the option of a move to the city of Milan.
