Manchester City are edging ever closer to completing a deal to land Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus, according to reports.
The Portugal international did not train with his current side despite being spotted at Juventus’ training ground on Friday morning and has already left the training centre amid talk of a sensational switch to City. There have been suggestions that Ronaldo cleared his locker at Juventus on Thursday evening.
It has been reported recently that the Portugal captain spent around 40 minutes at the training centre on Friday after bidding farewell to his teammates, as he awaits his agent Jorge Mendes to bring an official offer from City in these next hours after expressing his desire to leave Juventus.
Mendes has negotiated a transfer fee for the former Real Madrid man with City, who will come close to Juventus’ demands by presenting an offer in the region of €30 million for the striker, as the Premier League champions have offered a two-year contract offer worth €15 million-per-year at the Etihad Stadium.
As reported by Stuart Brennan of Manchester Evening News, Ronaldo is nearing a move to the Etihad Stadium, with just a transfer fee to be agreed upon by City and Juventus, as it has been said that the deal could even be completed for less than £25 million.
After a flurry of quick events in recent days, Ronaldo is ready to fly to England in these next hours and seal a move to City, who are prepared to submit an official offer to Juventus for the ex-Manchester United talisman.
