Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has emerged as a surprise target for Manchester City, according to the UK Mirror.
Ronaldo has one year left on his current contract with the Italian giants. But he is being linked with a move away from this summer after they failed to defend their league title.
Manchester United was also linked with the Portugal captain but is about to confirm the £73million signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
Manchester City could afford Ronaldo, and in the past, Pep Guardiola has spoken positively about the idea of having a player like the five-time Ballon d’Or winner in his squad.
“We don’t have a single player who can win a game, we don’t have a Cristiano, a [Lionel] Messi, a Neymar.
“We don’t have these types of players who can win games by themselves. I told the players many times, you have to play as a team.
“I will be honest. I’d like to have a player to score, every single game, four goals, and run like these players can run. I would love it,” he said.
