Manchester City have supposedly not ruled out the prospect of signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus in the coming days.
Despite Juve chiefs' insistence that Ronaldo is going nowhere this summer, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is still being heavily linked with an exit after entering the final 12 months of his Turin deal.
With Harry Kane confirming that he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur for the 2021-22 season, City have been tipped to turn their attention to Ronaldo, who is supposedly prepared to push for a move to the Etihad.
While Pep Guardiola is thought to retain faith in current number nine Gabriel Jesus, ESPN claims that the Premier League champions have not ruled out the idea of welcoming Ronaldo to the blue side of Manchester.
However, the report adds that the 36-year-old's mammoth wages could scupper a move, while Juve are thought to be demanding a fee of €30m (£25.7m) for his sale, whereas City do not want to dip into their war chest.
