Manchester City lining up shock Cristiano Ronaldo transfer
Manchester City are considering a shock move for former Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portugal international has entered the final year of his Juventus contract, and he has indicated his desire to move on.
A return to the Premier League could be on the cards. His agent Jorge Mendes has recently held talks with the Cityzens.
The English champions seemed on course to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, but he is now expected to stay.
Their focus is now on a surprise move for Ronaldo. The Cityzens are ready to meet his demands for a Premier League record salary.
However, they prefer to sign him on a free transfer rather than paying a fee. Juventus want around £25m for the 36-year-old.
The Cityzens have asked for some time to decide, but there appears a big possibility that Ronaldo could end up joining them.
The move could bring about a furious reaction from most Manchester United fans as he is regarded as a legend of the club.
