Cristiano Ronaldo is into the final year of his contract at Juventus and the Turin club are keen to sell him but want £25m for the Portugal captain; 36-year-old has told Juventus he no longer wants to play for the club, according to Sky in Italy.
Ronaldo, who is in the final year of his contract in Turin, was not in City’s plans this summer but he is an option they are considering after the Premier League champions missed out on signing England captain Harry Kane from Tottenham.
Major stumbling blocks to any potential deal are the £25m fee which Juventus are demanding for the 36-year-old forward and his £500,000 a week wages.
Ronaldo joined Juventus from Real Madrid in 2018 for a fee in the region of £105m and he has scored 101 goals in 134 games for the club, helping them to two Serie A titles, one Coppa Italia crown and two Italian Super Cups.
City are willing to offer Ronaldo a two-year contract, with a salary of £12.8m-per-season (€15m).
He is currently earning €31m (£26.6m) per year after tax at the Allianz Stadium.
