If you believe some of what you read in the papers, notably the Sunday Mirror then Cristiano Ronaldo would move to Manchester City but only if the club gave Real Madrid a world record £150million transfer fee. And on top of all that paid the Portuguese striker £400,000 a week.
The paper also suggest the 26-year-old and former Manchester United player would also want to be made captain and get the No.7 shirt, should the transfer materialise.
Rumours circulating around some of the sports journalists say City are making various attempts to lure Ronaldo to the City of Manchester Stadium but does anyone really think he'll return to the North-West of England?
A friend of Ronaldo's has reportedly said...
'Ronaldo is seriously tempted. He has been gloating that he wants to take the money, join City, score 50 goals in the Premier League and then leave.'
'He has fond memories of Manchester and still has good friends there,' said the unnamed source.
Two years ago Real Madrid paid Manchester United £80 million and in doing so gave Ronaldo a six-year contract thought to be worth €11 million per year. In addition the contract is thought to have a €1 billion buy-out clause.
The money regarding the buy-out is a drop in the ocean for City owner Sheikh Mansour but would it ever happen?
