Manchester City reveal decision on Cristiano Ronaldo move

Manchester City have turned down the chance to sign Cristiano Ronaldo as they do not want to pay Juventus’ €25 million (£21m) asking price, according to reports.

Ronaldo is pushing to leave the Italian club before the transfer deadline but his options are limited.

Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, is currently in Manchester as he also represents City midfielder Bernardo Silva, who is looking to leave the Premier League champions.

According to L’Equipe, Mendes is attempting to engineer a swap deal which would see Silva join Juventus, while Ronaldo heads in the opposite direction to City.
