Cristiano Ronaldo looks set to join Manchester City, as certain reports now claiming that the Portuguese superstar has agreed personal terms with Pep Guardiola’s men.
Whether City stump up that fee will most likely run right down to the transfer deadline on Tuesday evening, although there are promising signs that City will indeed sign a striker this summer.
The 36-year-old’s future at Juventus has been cast into doubt this summer and his agent Jorge Mendes flew to meet the Serie A giants’ bosses to discuss a resolution this week.
But now reports in the Portugal international’s home country suggest he has already 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.
Following up on the crunch summit between Juventus and Mendes, further reports have described the talks as being fraught with tension.
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.
