According to AS, Manchester City have reached an agreement with Cristiano Ronaldo. It only remains to find common ground with Juventus to complete the transfer.
A first step would have been taken in the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo in Manchester City. According to AS, the Portuguese striker, former idol of Manchester United, would have found a contractual agreement with the champions of England (information confirmed by several Portuguese journalists).
While he currently receives 30 million euros per year, Ronaldo has reportedly agreed to cut his salary in half. It would thus approach the emoluments of the highest paid player in Manchester City, Kevin De Bruyne, who receives around 15 million euros. This financial effort would confirm CR7’s desire to join Pep Guardiola’s formation.

But now, however, it remains to find common ground between the two clubs. That was the meaning of Jorge Mendes, Ronaldo’s agent, coming to Turin. The Portuguese spoke with the leaders of the Juve, but the meeting did not yield much according to the Gazzetta, since no official offer reached the Bianconeri. Seen from Italy, moreover, we pass on the message that the Old Lady does not want to let her attacker slip away.
AS nevertheless ensures that the discussions between the two clubs are progressing, and would relate to a possible exchange with a player from Man City. Juve reportedly want Gabriel Jesus while the Skyblues, oddly enough, are ready to offer Raheem Sterling. In the operation, Man City would also sign a check for 25 million euros.
