Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo will leave the club immediately and hence wasn’t training today with other players. He also won’t be available for the match against Empoli, confirmed Allegri.

Cristiano Ronaldo already has an agreement with the English club Manchester City. The only thing that remains is an agreement between both City and Juventus. Juventus wants at least €28 to €30 million for him but City was looking to buy him for free, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano and others. This will also apparently get resolved with the way things are moving forward. The city is also looking to offload players to buy Ronaldo. There are reports that players like Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva are being asked to look for new clubs to play for.

There have been recent reports of the Portuguese forward being offered to cross-town rivals, Manchester United also but City is looking to be his most likely destination. This will be very ironic because Ronaldo’s break out the season was with the Red Devils. His feats with that team are still remembered by supporters. He helped the club win three successive Premier League trophies and a historic Champions League trophy. His loyalty to that team was unquestionable in the eyes of supporters. He reiterated in 2015 that if he ever comes back to England, he will go to United but things change. If this transfer goes through, it will taint him in the eyes of United supporters.

Ronaldo with City looks a very delicious prospect though with them already having great attacking players such as De Bruyne, Jesus, Mahrez etc. We will have to wait and watch how this transfer goes and how it changes the football landscape but for now, this move does look exciting for the Premier League.
