Although Manchester City have been said to be close to hosting Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, who eventually landed with neighbors United, the Pep Guardiola-coached club have reportedly never reached the final stage of negotiations for the five-fold Golden Ball.

In recent hours, the British press has reported that Manchester City reportedly tried to secure the services of Cristiano Ronaldo during the last offseason. Indeed, an offer of 29M € was ready for Juventus where his contract expired in June 2022. And The Daily Star notably added that an agreement in principle with the Ronaldo was even found to wear the Skyblues blue tunic. Finally, Cristiano Ronaldo is committed to his former club: Manchester United , where he was revealed to Europe between 2003 and 2009. Nevertheless, the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola would not have been so determined to complete this operation.

“It was never close to being closed”

At least that's what a source told The Daily Telegraph on Saturday. According to information from the source in question, nothing would have come close to being signed between Manchester City and Cristiano Ronaldo . “City are looking for a striker to stay for a while. Ronaldo was an option that hit the market last week and maybe it was too tight and was a really good short term option, but not really the one the club needed. It was never close to being completed ”.
