According to the Daily Star, Premier League runners-up Manchester City are actively monitoring Cristiano Ronaldo’s situation at Real Madrid, and are prepared to rival any offer that Manchester United may make for the Portuguese star.
According to the report, City management are waiting to make a bid for Ronaldo as the player’s future still rests on the shoulders of Real Madrid, who are yet to publicly make the player available. The Daily Star says that it understands that City’s upper brass have told Ronaldo’s camp that the Manchester club are prepared to beat any offer from Manchester United, with a chance that City could pay upwards of £300,000-a-week to bring the attacker to the Etihad.
Since Ronaldo’s rocky season at Real Madrid has come to an end, new Old Trafford boss David Moyes has been rumored to be interested in bringing the Portuguese international back to the English champions, whose years at Old Trafford propelled the 28-year-old to stardom.
But City are prepared to “break the bank,” according to the Daily Star, and are “deadly serious” about bringing the Real Madrid man to the other side of Manchester, no matter the cost.
Ronaldo currently has two more years left on his contract with Los Blancos, but despite public interest from major clubs like PSG, United, and City, have yet to make an extension offer to the Real Madrid star.
