Transfer news: Manchester City is ready to join the chase for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo. A new deal at the Bernabeu seems unlikely, paving way for Premier League interest.
Football club Manchester City is hoping to pull off an attempt of a lifetime by signing Portugal forward, Cristiano Ronaldo after his representative met Juventus officials concerning a potential return.
Sources close to ESPN revealed that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and Juventus forward Ronaldo spoke on the phone Thursday morning. The sources further indicated that they are looking into a deal for his transfer from Juventus as he may leave anytime soon.
Ronaldo’s contract is nearing its end and he could be on the move to another league soon. His agent was in Turin this week discussing a potential transfer fee with Juventus for his client, who signed from Real Madrid last year.
Although there are some obstacles to overcome before the transfer is done, including Juventus’ demand for a fee and Ronaldo’s wage bill, sources say that negotiations can lead to a deal. If all goes well with these talks then Juventus would be willing to let him go in exchange for around €28 million from Real Madrid.
Negotiations between Manchester City and Real Madrid over a potential transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo are ongoing. Raheem Sterling is reportedly in line to receive an offer that would pay him more than £250,000 per week should he choose to leave the Etihad Stadium along with Bernardo Silva could depart if City receives suitable bids for his services as well.
Reports are conflicting over whether or not Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo. Regardless of his interest, the club has already signed Jack Grealish from Aston Villa this summer and he will be a valuable addition to their current squad.
