The transfer market is not over yet and it seems that there will be a new bombshell, because as reported by Diario As, Manchester City would have reached an agreement with Cristiano Ronaldo.

In the beginning of the agreement, the Portuguese would sign a contract until 2023 and would charge 15 million euros per season, half of what he currently earns at Juventus, however, for the operation to be unlocked, the ‘ok’ of the Bianconero team would be missing.
The closure that comes to us in this transfer market!

In this sense and as As advanced, Manchester City would have to add Gabriel Jesús to the operation that would be the ideal candidate to replace Ronaldo, however, the ‘Sky Blues’ do not plan to transfer the Brazilian forward since Guardiola catalogs him as untransferable.
In this sense, the English team has offered Raheem Sterling in the operation but the ‘vecchia signora’ does not value the player’s profile since they need an area striker and not a winger.

But everything seems to indicate that Cristiano will not stay in Italy as claimed by the vice president of the team, Pavel Nedved, because his agent traveled to Turin to solve the matter of the transfer of Ronaldo and the purpose is that he does not have to play this weekend against him Empoli, although there are a few days before the transfer market closes and the operation will have to be expedited.
