Portuguese sensation Cristiano Ronaldo looks set to play in Serie A this season and see out the final year of his contract with Juventus. However, with the transfer window still open, anything could happen, as a report in Italy has claimed something sensational.

As per Corriere dello Sport, Ronaldo has been offered to English giant Manchester City by his super-agent Jorge Mendes for just £26 million. City is in desperate need of a striker following the departure of club legend Sergio Aguero.

City has reportedly been targetting Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane. However, the London-based club is reluctant to sell him as even a bid of €150 million has failed to tempt the club to let go of him.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo's association with City comes as a huge surprise for the entire world of football for the fact that he played for its neighbouring rival Manchester United for eight years. While Ronaldo has also been linked to a return to United or Real Madrid, no strong effort has emerged from both the clubs to have his services again.

Overall, it is baffling to understand if Ronaldo would indeed ever play for City, considering his loyalties towards United. However, if he does choose the blue side of Manchester, he would certainly make some sort of impact on the club for sure.

In the meantime, it is also unclear if Juventus want Ronaldo to renew the deal. Also, letting go of him would allow the Turin-based club to do away with €31 million of his pay.
