Manchester City are reportedly edging closer towards securing a deal with Juventus for Cristiano Ronaldo before the end of this transfer window, as per the recent reports.
After spending three years with Bianconeri, the 36-year-old has expressed his desire to leave Turin this summer. During this time with the Serie A giants, the forward has scored 101 goals in 134 appearances in all competitions.
According to reports, the former Manchester United player’s agent Jorge Mendes has been trying hard over the past few days to find a suitable destination for his client. The Portuguese superstar has already expressed his desire to leave the club and the Serie A giants are also open to selling their talisman.
The Premier League champions Manchester City have shown the most interest in bringing Ronaldo back to English football. The Citizens have already started talks about the personal terms with the player’s agent. Juventus are asking at around € 25/30 million for their star man who still has one year remaining in his current contract. However, Pep Guardiola’s side are not willing to meet the Old Lady of Turin’s demands.
Ronaldo set to leave Juventus and join Manchester City:
Cristiano Ronaldo playing under Pep Guardiola is a completely unfamiliar scenario for football fans. However, Manchester City are looking for a new centre-forward this summer and bringing on Cristiano Ronaldo will be a perfect addition.
The 36-year-old has already showcased his goal-scoring prowess at the Allianz Stadium and the Citizens fans will be hoping to experience the same from the Portuguese superstar. The mentality of Ronaldo and Guardiola is pretty similar who want to win at any cost, so, uniting with the former Barcelona manager will be the right decision for the forward at this stage of his career.
After failing to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, signing Ronaldo will be a shrewd decision from Manchester City. The Citizens struggled to score goals when it really matters and the Portuguese will surely break the deadlock in the big games.
