Juventus ‘await Man City bid’ to reach Cristiano Ronaldo agreement quickly

Juventus are reportedly awaiting for a bid from Manchester City for Cristiano Ronaldo with an agreement potentially reached as early as Friday.

Ronaldo is believed to want to leave Juve with City desperate for a new striker following the departure of Sergio Aguero.

Pep Guardiola's side could not get a deal for Harry Kane over the line and it seems they have now turned their attentions to Ronaldo.

The Portugal star spent a chunk of his career in the city having shone at Manchester United before joining Real Madrid in 2009.

And he could be back in the Premier League before Tuesday's transfer deadline with renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano claiming Juventus are waiting for an official bid.

It's reported the Serie A giants await the bid 'in the next hours' in order to reach an agreement as soon as possible.

Romano adds that Ronaldo wants to leave Juventus and won't be available for their next match.

While a tweet also confirms Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes is discussing a contract for the 36-year-old with Manchester City.

Ronaldo has spent the last three seasons in Turin, scoring 81 Serie A goals and winning the title twice.

A move to the Etihad would see Ronaldo team up with Guardiola for the first time, with the Spaniard often singing his praises.

Guardiola previously said: "I'm lucky to enjoy the Portuguese players in the club. I was made with Portuguese players like Luis Figo and Fernando Couto at Barcelona and all of them were incredible professional and incredibly talented players.

"I have good memories about the relationships with them and it's the same here. It's perfect. It's quite similar.

"I'm a Catalan and the Portuguese to us is very similar. From our weather, our culture to our life style.

"I think the national team has an incredible team. It's one of the favourites for the European Cup and the World Cup.

"Of course Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best football players of all time."
