Premier League champions Manchester City have reportedly offered Cristiano Ronaldo a two-year contract worth £230,000-a-week after missing out on a deal for Harry Kane this summer according to reports across Europe.
City chased Kane throughout the window but the £150million-rated forward revealed on Wednesday that he is ‘100 per cent’ remaining at Spurs for the coming season.
Missing out on Kane means City have limited options in the centre-forward position after Sergio Aguero’s departure on a free transfer.
Gabriel Jesus is the only recognised forward but has been used out wide, while Ferran Torres and Liam Delap remain options and City are willing to offer Ronaldo a two-year deal worth over £230,000-a-week but do not want to pay Juventus a transfer fee for the Portuguese icon.
Ronaldo is reportedly looking for a new challenge and his agent Jorge Mendes offered him to City last week for £25m.
The Portuguese was left on the bench of Juventus’ last Serie A game away at Udinese, raising speculation about his future, but the Portuguese forward did come off the bench in that match and scored a winner, only for it to be chalked off by VAR.
Paris Saint-Germain remain interested in Ronaldo as well with the French giants struggling to keep Kylian Mbappe, who was the subject of a £137million bid from Real Madrid this week.
