Manchester City have emerged as a shock new possible next destination for Cristiano Ronaldo, as per Calciomercato.
Manchester City want Ronaldo as a short-term successor to Sergio Aguero, according to the report. Aguero left the club earlier this summer following the expiration of his contract to join FC Barcelona.
The Sky Blues could use Gabriel Jesus in a deal to bring the prolific Portuguese at the Etihad, with Juventus seemingly interested in signing the Brazilian striker.
Although it sounds far-fetched, Ronaldo moving to Man City would spark intense controversy considering he spent six successful seasons with their rivals Manchester United and is a beloved figure among the Red Devils faithful.
In other news, Paris Saint-Germain remain interested in the 36-year-old, whose future remains unsolved as he enters the final year of his Juventus contract.
A 36-year-old CR7 is barely showing any signs of slowing down. Having won the Golden Boot at Euro 2020, he is in contention to win the 2021 Ballon d’Or.
