Turin -Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly close to Manchester City . However, Juventus will only release if the request for a price of 25 million euros is met.
Ronaldo’s future at Juventus is being speculated. It can’t be separated from his contract which will expire in 2022 but there has been no renewal until now.
Juventus did not rule out releasing Ronaldo before his contract expired. The Portuguese star is also rumored to want to leave the Allianz Stadium.
However, City want to bring Ronaldo from Juventus for free. Moreover, they had spent heavily by spending 100 million pounds for Jack Grealish.
The latest news says Juventus held a meeting with Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent , Jorge Mendes, on Thursday (26/8/2021) in Turin to discuss the future of the 36-year-old player. However, the two sides failed to reach agreement on a free transfer to Man City.
Man City is the only club currently said to be interested in Ronaldo. City need a striker after failing to sign Harry Kane.
Cristiano Ronaldo does not fit the profile of the player City is looking for. However, it is claimed City are considering signing the former Manchester United player if the deal is both sporting and financial.
Man City Offers This Salary For Ronaldo
Manchester -Manchester City are not playing games to get Cristiano Ronaldo . Citizens have even offered quite a lot, even though the number is far from Juventus .
However, until now there has been no talk of a new contract and there is even the potential for Ronaldo to leave this summer.
Because Juventus certainly don’t want to lose the Portuguese player for free. Even if the transfer value is small, this amount will definitely help Juventus’ finances during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Well, Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent , Jorge Mendes, is trying to offer his client to an interested club who can definitely pay his salary. The two clubs are Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City .
Because, PSG have brought in Lionel Messi and still have to release a lot of players in order to comply with FFP rules, then City is the most realistic choice for Ronaldo.
Even though City are Manchester United’s city rivals, they certainly don’t want to miss the opportunity to bring in Ronaldo. With the failure to recruit Harry Kane, City will still be looking for a goal-hungry striker in the rest of the transfer market.
Quoted by Sky Sports , City have offered Ronaldo a two-year contract with a salary of around 12.8 million euros (15 million euros) per season to Ronaldo.
This salary is clearly down by more than half what Ronaldo got at Juventus of 31 million euros. But, Ronaldo will be one of the players with the highest salary at City around 310-315 thousand pounds per week.
With the age of 36 years, the salary is quite high. However, City still have to spend around 25 million euros (21.4 million pounds) to bring Ronaldo.
Manchester City reportedly do not want to comply with Juventus ‘ request and they have not even made an official offer to sign Cristiano Ronaldo . Even City denied the news that Gabriel Jesus would be part of the transfer.
From Jesus to Martial, the Candidate to Replace Ronaldo at Juventus
Cristiano Ronaldo is increasingly being reported as looking for an exit from Juventus with Manchester City as his goal. If Ronaldo left, who would the Bianconeri buy?
Ronaldo’s contract at Juventus only lasts for this season. The 36-year-old could be free to start negotiations with other clubs next January if there was no contract extension this year.
Juventus and Ronaldo appear to have no intention of discussing a new contract. The Bianconeri are even said to want to let Ronaldo go this summer so as not to lose too much after spending around 100 million euros for a transfer from Real Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, tried to offer his client to Manchester City. Juventus want at least 25 million euros for Ronaldo’s purchase dowry.
Quoted by Sky Sports, Man City have offered Ronaldo a two-year contract with a salary of around 12.8 million euros (15 million euros) per season. This salary is clearly down by more than half what Ronaldo got at Juventus of 31 million euros.
Juventus then want Man City striker, Gabriel Jesus , if Ronaldo to the Etihad Stadium. On the other hand, Man City are reluctant to let the Brazilian player go.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that there are three other targets for Ronaldo’s replacement at Juventus. Mauro Icardi, who is now dressed as Paris Saint-Germain, became a target.
Juventus have been linked with Icardi since last season. Over time, this never happened and the Old Lady instead brought in Alvaro Morata.
Juventus must think carefully if they want to spend money to bring Icardi. The former Inter Milan striker is currently injured and needs a month’s rest.
Moise Kean, who Juventus sold to Everton in 2019, became a target. His form has been promising since his loan spell at PSG last season with 17 goals from 41 matches.
Luka Jovic is another name mentioned by La Gazzetta dello Sport as a replacement for Ronaldo. The Serbian striker is still having trouble stealing his place as the main striker at Real Madrid.
Tuttosport also named Anthony Martial of Manchester United as a potential replacement for Ronaldo. Martial is often inconsistent with the Red Devils and it is not impossible to leave Old Trafford in order to be competitive again.
