According to reports in Portugal, Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to leave Juventus. Earlier, Italian reports said that he had received a two-year deal from the City. Now, Portuguese reports say that the star footballer has agreed personal terms with Manchester City.
There had been doubts about Ronaldo’s future with Juventus this summer. His agent Jorge Mendes had reportedly flown to meet the Series A bosses, Juventus on Thursday morning, to discuss terms and a resolution.
Reports in Portugal suggest that talks are over with City boss Pep Guardiola. Talks are on about letting him leave, three years after he joined Juventus.
Italian reports, earlier in the week, had said that Cristiano Ronaldo had been offered a two-year deal and a remuneration of £230,000 per week by Man City.
Following Ronaldo’s lucrative contract, City has to negotiate a fee with Juventus but City is not willing to spend much as it has already offered the star forward a huge fee. It is looking for a free transfer. It has also been reported that Guardiola allegedly rejected the proposal of a swap deal for Brazilian footballer Gabriel Jesus as City was looking for a compromise.
The offer for Cristiano Ronaldo was made by Man City after striker Harry Kane decided to remain in London with the Tottenham Spurs, recently.
Reports say that Ronaldo earned more than £500,000 per week with Juventus. When he signed with the Series A giants in 2018, after leaving Real Madrid, it was for a huge payout. He scored 81 league goals in 98 games with Juventus. However, he now has less than a year left with the club, till the summer of 2022.
It looks like the Catalan manager, Pep Guardiola and the Portuguese professional football legend, Cristiano Ronaldo, will finally play together at Manchester City. Guardiola had often spoken of his admiration of Ronaldo.
