Manchester City 'agree personal terms' with Cristiano Ronaldo
So this might actually happen
Manchester City have reportedly agreed personal terms with Cristiano Ronaldo, as the Juventus star looks for a route out of the Italian club.
Juventus are keen to offload Ronaldo, who is currently taking half a million pounds a week out of their wage budget, but are demanding a fee, while City are hoping to sign the five-time Ballon d'Or winner on a free.
Spanish newspaper AS are reporting that personal terms are all agreed, with earlier reports from Sky Italy suggesting Ronaldo would be paid £12.8m-per-season, just over a third of what he earns in Italy.
AS also report that City have offered Juventus Raheem Sterling as part of the deal, while Juve would prefer to take Gabriel Jesus in return.
There are still factors to iron out before this deal can happen, but the wheels are in motion.
