Cristiano Ronaldo Might Go to Manchester City in a Record Deal

Al-Qabas, page 57

Madrid: Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is keen to hear from Manchester City – if they’re willing to pay him 400,000-a-week pounds!

The Sunday Mirror says the Real Madrid superstar is bragging to friends that he is wanted by City’s Abu Dhabi-based owner Sheikh Mansour as he strives to make the Blues football’s No.1 club.

Ronaldo has told confidantes in Manchester that someone connected to the Sheikh’s ­family has contacted him informally with a mindblowing package that is tempting the former  Manchester United hero to move to Eastlands.

However, last night City  insisted that no approach had been made by them or on their behalf. Ronaldo has put together a list of astonishing demands if he was to return to England.

The Portuguese star told a friend:

– He wants 400k pounds a week.

– The No.7 shirt and captain’s armband.

– A guarantee that he will always be the club’s highest paid player.

The 26-year-old forward has claimed that City would have to pay Real a near 100 per cent profit on the 80 million pounds world record transfer fee they paid to United for him two years ago.

And Ronaldo believes that City would pay him a 350,000 pounds-a-week basic wage with a bonus and image rights package that would see his earnings soar even higher.

However, he wants 400,000 pounds a week.

A source close to Ronaldo  confirmed: “Cristiano says there has been contact ­ between him and a third party. He says that he is extremely flattered at the lengths they’re willing to go to.

“He claimed that they will pay him what it takes to make him a Manchester City player.

“He says he wants 400k pounds as taxes are higher in England.”

    he also said that whats going on is all rumours, and he’s not willing to join any englsh club apart from Manchester United! as United and Man City are rivals, i think it would be an impossible move for the Portugease international. As well as Floretino Perez (Real Madrids “Chairman”) said that Cristiano is NOT for sale at any price. In my view i think he won’t join city for 2 reasons: 1- That Man city are not favourites for the english title and the champions league, as Ronaldo wants to win big trophies, and 2- He won’t join Man City which are rivals to United, and he owes Sir Alex big time as Ferguson is the one who lifted him to world class football! Basically its all rumours

      You’re probably right.

      But remember there’s no loyalty in business… Just go back to the time David Beckham threw his shoes at Sir Ferguson.

      And £80 million is a LOOOOOOOOOT of money!

    Basically he won’t make a move to United rivals(city) and city are not favourites to win big trophies like the english premier league and the uefa champions league

      It would be nice to see him in Manchester, though. And I agree, I don’t see Man city as getting up there in the ranks. I don’t know what they’re doing wrong. But I’ve been a Chelsea fan from way back when they were still terrible.

      When the Russians came in, it only took Chelsea 2-3 seasons to rule English and European football. Man City isn’t up there yet , so yeah, Ronaldo might not go to them at all 😦
