Superstar footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed on personal terms with Manchester City despite playing for rival Manchester United during the peak of his career.
The 36-year-old’s future at Juventus has been cast into doubt this summer and his agent Jorge Mendes had to flew to Italy to meet the Serie A giants’ bosses to discuss a resolution.
According to new reports in Portugal, Ronaldo has spoken with City boss Pep Guardiola, and that the Italian side are now in talks with the Premier League champions about letting him leave three years after he joined.
Reports in Italy earlier this week reported that City had offered the former Manchester United star a two-year deal worth £230,000 per week after missing out on Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
Sportsmail also understands the ex-Real Madrid forward was offered to Guardiola’s side in a £25million deal earlier this month.
City will now have to negotiate a fee for Ronaldo’s lucrative contract amid reports he currently earn in excess of £500,000 per week at the Allianz Stadium.
He signed for Juventus in a mega-money move from Real Madrid in 2018, but now has less than 12 months remaining on his deal at the Serie A giants.
The same report suggested that Guardiola reportedly rejected a proposal of a swap deal involving Gabriel Jesus, as City look to find a compromise.
‘We don’t have a single player who can win a game, we don’t have a Cristiano, [Lionel] Messi, a Neymar,’ Guardiola once said, highlighting Ronaldo first.
‘We don’t have these types of players who can win games by themselves. I told the players many times, you have to play as a team.
‘I will be honest. I’d like to have a player to score, every single game, four goals and run like these players can run. I would love it.’
