Speculations about a move from Juventus to Manchester City are increasing

Will there still be a real blockbuster transfer this summer? Allegedly, Manchester City is considering buying Cristiano Ronaldo (36).

Report on a possible change among others Gazzetta dello Sport (Italy), The Athletic (England) and L’Equipe (France). The reports are, however, diffuse.

the Gazzetta writes of a transfer fee of 25 million euros. City coach Pep Guardiola could imagine integrating Ronaldo into the team structure as an interim solution for the current season in order to increase the team’s goal risk.

AthleticReporter Sam Lee reports that Juventus even actively offered Ronaldo. And according to the French L’Equipe Ronaldo can well imagine a move to Manchester City.

Cristiano Ronaldo before change? This is the state

According to information from SPOX and Goal, the situation at Manchester City is unchanged for the time being. Transfer target number one remains after the purchase of Jack Grealish (25) Tottenham striker Harry Kane (28). According to Independent ManCity recently improved the initial offer for Kane: 176 million euros. According to various media reports, the Spurs should demand 186 million euros.

Last weekend, after surviving the corona infection, Kane made his comeback for Tottenham (18 minutes) in a 1-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Should Kane stay with Spurs, the eight-year-old Ronaldo would apparently be the B solution for City. According to information from SPOX and Goal has not yet expressed a transfer request to Ronaldo, nor have Juventus official offers have been made. With a view to the approaching end of the transfer period (August 31), there could be some movement in Ronaldo poker in the coming days.

Juventus denies rumors about Ronaldo

According to Tuttosport Juve is already preparing to say goodbye to the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who moved from Real Madrid to Turin in 2018 for 117 million euros. Accordingly, Gabriel Jesus (24, Manchester City), Anthony Martial (25, Manchester United) and Mauro Icardi (28, PSG) are possible options for Juventus.

A possible change by Ronaldo last weekend was fueled by the fact that the Portuguese only came off the bench at the start of the league against Udinese Calcio (2-2). Juve vice-president Pavel Nedved said before the game DAZN but: “We made this decision together with Ronaldo. He will stay 100 percent.” Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri had already assured on Saturday: “To be clear: Ronaldo told me that he would stay.”

In an Instagram post, CR7 recently made it clear that he found the speculation about his person “disrespectful” and “frivolous”. However, he avoided a commitment to Juventus.

Ronaldo’s contract is only running for one year

Ronaldo’s future remains uncertain for the time being. His contract with Juventus only runs for one year until June 30, 2022. He will then be 37 years old. From a Juventus point of view, a change would be quite conceivable. In order to generate any transfer proceeds, you would have to hand over Ronaldo this summer.

A move to Manchester City would also be explosive for two reasons. For one, Ronaldo played for city rivals Manchester United for six years. On the other hand, Manchester City waived a few weeks earlier to submit an offer for the free transfer Lionel Messi. Messi played 219 competitive games under city coach Guardiola at FC Barcelona.
