Portugal and Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, is reported to have agreed on personal terms with Manchester City ahead of his return to the English Premier League.
Multiple English sports media reports including one from The Mirror, monitored by African Entertainment, revealed that Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, traveled to Turin today, Thursday August 26, 2021, to secure his (Ronaldo’s) departure from Juventus.
Reports say Ronaldo is ready to join the reigning English Premier League Champions after a conversation with coach Pep Guardiola.
Last Sunday, Ronaldo reportedly asked that he be left out of Juventus’ starting XI for their Serie A opener with Udinese, sparking the transfer rumor.
However, the Vice Chairman of Juventus, Pavel Nedved, played down speculation that being left out of the starting XI meant Ronaldo was looking to exit the Serie A club.
Other sports media reports in Italy suggested that Ronaldo has already informed his Juventus teammates that he wants to join Man City.
But, according to reports, Manchester City have not made any formal offer for the Portuguese soccer icon.
Ronaldo is expected to earn in excess of £500,000 per week at the Etihad, reports The Mirror.
