Former Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo is set to make a return to the English Premier League as Premier League champions Manchester City is keeping tabs on him. Following the failure of singing Lionel Messi by the club and Harry Kane’s decision to remain the club has made them switch attention to the Juventus star player.
Doubts have surrounded Ronaldo’s future with the Italian side, and reports have it that it was because he was looking for a new club that was why he did not begin their last weekend’s opener at Udinese, of which the head coach Allegri denied the reports.
Cristiano Ronaldo Push for Manchester City Move
The 36-year-old has one year remaining on his deal in Turin, and the Italians are understood to be willing to let their talisman go for £25million amid links to Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain. According to L’Equipe, Ronaldo is currently pushing to the Premier League, with Manchester City the primary place in mind.
It was gathered that Ronaldo is trying to create the right circumstances for a move, including a swap deal involving Portugal team-mate Bernardo Silva or defender Aymeric Laporte. Should the deal work, it will spoil the connection and relationship between him and the fans of Manchester United.
Manchester City is already desperate to sign a point, and since Harry Kane has made it clear that he is not leaving Tottenham this season. There is every possibility of the former Real Madrid player joining his former side’s rival Manchester City.
