The summer transfer window is so far away that there are only four days left. As if we haven’t seen the explosive transition already, it has now been reported that Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo will soon join Premier League champions Manchester City.
Ronaldo has been embroiled in speculation about a transfer all summer, but it looks like he wasn’t going anywhere when he satirized the media last week for publishing numerous speculations about his future. Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri also assured the press that Ronaldo will remain, as many Juventus executives and owners have said.
However, transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Ronaldo has informed the club that he wants to leave this summer, and that Manchester City is his destination.
Several other Italian media outlets have also confirmed this, with some stating that Ronaldo has already cleared his locker at the Juventus facility.
“Juventus are waiting for Manchester City’s official bid to reach an agreement as soon as possible in the next few hours. Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave and he will not be available for the next match. # Ronaldo Manchester City,” Romano added. Said
The transfer window is set to close on Tuesday, but after seeing how quickly Lionel Messi left FC Barcelona to sign for Paris Saint-Germain, there is reason to believe that the transfer for Ronaldo should be completed. Enough time
It is believed that City had previously wanted England captain Hurricane to sign from Tottenham Hotspur, but the deal did not materialize. The Spurs are not interested in releasing their star striker on the cheap, and Citi do not seem ready to meet their prices. Meanwhile, it is thought that Pep Guardiola will need a cough somewhere in the region of 25 to 30 million euros to get Ronaldo.
Ronaldo has one year left on his contract with Juventus, and The Old Lady now wants to take advantage of him instead of losing him on a free transfer next summer. Unfortunately, this also means that he will fail to achieve his goal of bringing the UEFA Champions League trophy to Turin.
The Portuguese captain joined Juventus in 2018 after nine years with Spanish giants Real Madrid. He won four Champions League trophies with Los Blancos, and the Juventus hoped his winning touch would pay off. However, despite being a Serie A top scorer last season, Ronaldo failed to help the Juventus retain their Serie A title. Nor did he win the Champions League in three seasons with the club.
However, Ronaldo was still Italy’s top scorer last season, proving that his quality is not over. Now, it seems he is anxious to offer his services in England. If the deal with City goes ahead, it will be a widely controversial transfer, a slap in the face for his former club Manchester United.
