The Spanish newspaper “AS” revealed that the English club Manchester City reached an agreement on personal terms with Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, noting that only the agreement between his current club, Juventus, and the English club, “Premier League champion”, remains on the financial summit of the deal.
The newspaper said that the ball is now in the court of the Juventus club to agree to the offer, which appears to be on its way to the official announcement, especially since Ronaldo wants to get rid of Juve after the latter contracted with the former coach of the team, Massimiliano Allegri, who sat the “Don” on the bench at the opening of the Italian League against Udinese to the astonishment of observers.
The newspaper pointed out that the next few hours will resolve the deal without sums of money paid, with the integration of several players in the deal acceptable to the two clubs, while attention is focused on the identity of the players integrated in the expected deal, most notably the Brazilian Gabriel Jesus, whose services Juventus wants to obtain, while news from England indicates that Manchester City prefers to include Englishman Raheem Sterling in the deal.
Juventus was seeking to obtain between 25 and 30 million euros for the sale of Ronaldo, 36, who won the Golden Ball award as the best player in the world five times, and who is spending the last year of his contract with Juventus, which had included the player from Real Madrid in the year 2018.
Italian reports indicated that Ronaldo’s move to Manchester City would reduce the salary bill in Juventus, as the Portuguese star receives about 30 million euros annually, under the terms of his contract with the club, according to Sky Sports news.
