Cristiano Ronaldo agrees Manchester City move

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly agreed personal terms ahead of a transfer to Manchester City.

It is claimed that the Portugal captain could arrive in Manchester in hours, if the clubs can agree which player will join Juventus in exchange.

City are reported to have offered Raheem Sterling while Juventus have asked for Gabriel Jesus.

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.

Ronaldo made it clear to Juventus that he is angling for an exit over the coming days after asking to be benched for their clash with Udinese. Massimiliano Allegri denied this, but it is understood a departure is on the cards.

Pavel Nedved, vice-chairman of the Old Lady, doubled down on Allegri’s bullish comments, telling DAZN: “We’ve decided together with Ronaldo. It’s normal. Ronaldo will 100% stay.

“It was a shared decision with the player. We have to start [the] season, [but] you can’t be at the top. It’s a decision for the good of the team. [Giorgio] Chiellini, a European champion, also starts from the bench today.”
