Cristiano Ronaldo submits a transfer request as Juventus looks for a speedy deal with Manchester City.
Cristiano Ronaldo appears to be on his way out of Juventus this summer.
Cristiano Ronaldo is said to have submitted a transfer request to Juventus in order to leave the Serie A club. As he puts aside his previous affiliations to United, Manchester City appears to be his destiny.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Manchester City appears to have progressed another stage after he reportedly submitted a transfer request at Juventus.
The Portugal international is considering a move away from the Serie A club.
And Juve is just waiting for City to submit a formal bid before moving forward with a mega-transfer for Ronaldo.
All of this is according to Fabrizio Romano, who claims that negotiations between Ronaldo and City are already in the works.
According to Romano, Ronaldo’s representative Jorge Mendes is now in talks with City concerning his contract.
It was previously reported that the Sky Blues were willing to grant the 36-year-old a two-year contract, making him the club’s highest-paid player.
Late Thursday night, Romano reported that Ronaldo’s presence might spark a deal for Raheem Sterling if City receive the proper offer.
Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney, a United icon, stated on Thursday that he does not believe Ronaldo would join City.
To be honest, I’m not sure what to make of it,” Derby County manager Wayne Rooney said at a press conference on Thursday.
“If you’re asking if I believe it’s possible, I’d say I have serious reservations about it. He has a tremendous reputation at Manchester United, and I doubt he will leave for financial reasons.
“I’m not so convinced that’ll happen. I believe he has a better chance of joining PSG than staying with Juventus. On the other hand, football is a game where anything can happen.
“It has happened in the past. Manchester United legends have made the move to City. City was managed by Peter Schmeichel, Andy Cole, and Mark Hughes, so it has occurred before.
“However, I believe someone of Cristiano’s stature… I don’t think it’ll happen.”
