Manchester City have been offered the chance to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus.Ronaldo is out of contract next summer and Juventus want to sell him to save on the £500,000 a week wages they pay him plus tax.
Ronaldo is willing to leave and his agent Jorge Mendes has been looking for a club who are willing to pay a £25m transfer fee for the 36-year-old and take on his wages.
But Juventus want at least £21.4m (€25m) as a transfer fee and no formal offer has been made yet.
City are interested in bringing Ronaldo back to the Premier League on a free transfer and are willing to offer him a two-year contract, with a salary of £12.8m-per-season (€15m), according to Sky in Italy.
Pep Guardiola believes his squad is now even stronger than last season’s champions, but City are still prepared to sign a forward after missing out on Harry Kane.
The 36-year-old, who scored 118 goals in 292 games for Manchester United between 2003 and 2009, has been linked with a move away from Turin this summer and is understood to be open to leaving, but Juventus expect him to stay.
