According to the latest reports by Fabrizio Romano, the 5- time Ballon D’or winner is eager to have a change of scenery and is confident of a move away from the Italian giants. While Ronaldo is still at the top of his game despite being 36-years old, making a move for him might be a costly affair.

Given his huge wage bill, only clubs like Manchester City have emerged as potential suitors for the 5-time Ballon D’or winner. With the Cityzens are in a dire need of a striker and prime target Harry Kane committed to the Spurs, City making a move for Ronaldo looks more and more likely.

When Cristiano Ronaldo explained why he wouldn’t join Manchester City

A potential signing of Cristiano Ronaldo can send massive shock-waves in Manchester. Before his record-breaking stint with Real Madrid, Ronaldo was a star in Manchester United.

Progressing from a young streaky winger to perhaps one of the best in the world, Ronaldo certainly had a massive impact in the Red Devils. Given how important United were to his development, during his days with Real, Ronaldo had explained why he would never join the Blue side of Manchester.

“You think the money’s gonna change my mind at 32 years old, I don’t think so. I think that’s not gonna be a problem. If you will speak about the money, I will go to Qatar. Probably they have more money than Manchester City. It’s not about the money, it’s about the passion.”

A move to City certainly looks enticing for a veteran striker like Ronaldo. Given the quality of the City team, the Portuguese has a perfect chance to win a Champions League trophy once again.

But this move might not be without any criticisms though. Given his incredible history with Manchester United, a move to the Blue half of Manchester might send the town in frenzy. Will Ronaldo really join Manchester City at the end of the transfer window?
