Thursday became the day of truth Gazzetta dello sport specified. After all, it was no less than the future of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. There have been rumors for weeks that the striker is considering changing clubs. Now Ronaldo’s wish must come true: according to media reports, the 36-year-old is about to move to Manchester City.
On Sunday, CR7 only sat on the bench for its first Serie A match against Udinese, which has fueled intense transfer speculation. That speculation was fired again on Thursday when Jorge Mendes, Ronaldo’s advisor, met with Juventus chiefs for a chat. Late Thursday evening, many media outlets wanted to know: the star has deposited his change request with the club’s management and wants to leave.
According to media reports, Manchester City is preparing an offer of between 25-30 million euros for the Portuguese – an amount that Juventus seem ready to pull off the goal machine (31 million euros annual salary with the Bianconeri). The next few hours will bring clarity.
