The Portugal captain is out of contract at the Italian club next summer and his agent, Jorge Mendes, is understood to be looking for options.
Sky Sports has reported that City are understood to be interested in signing the forward before the transfer deadline on Tuesday, but it’s also believed they are reluctant to pay a transfer fee.
Manchester City have reportedly been offered the chance to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus before Tuesday’s transfer deadline.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is out of contract at the Italian club next season, and it is understood that they want to sell him to save on his massive wages. Juve pay Ronaldo £500,000 a week, plus tax, but they are also looking for a transfer fee for their star player.
According to Sky in Italy, City would be interested in signing the Portugal forward, but only on a free transfer, rather than paying the requested £21.4m. A two-year contract would be on the table, worth £12.8 million a season.
Super-agent Jorge Mendes is looking for options to get Ronaldo out of Juventus, who only used the forward off the bench in their opening Serie A draw with Udinese on Sunday.
A mouthwatering link up with arch-rival Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-Germain has also been rumoured to be a possibility.
Pep Guardiola has been so clear with Manchester City: he’d like to keep Gabriel Jesus as part of the team, also people close to Brazilian striker are firmly convinced that Gabriel will stay. 🔵🇧🇷 #MCFC
He’s currently not included in Cristiano Ronaldo talks with Mendes/Juventus.
