The agent of Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has arrived in Turin as Premier League champions Manchester City have been “offered the chance” to sign the Portugal captain, according to Sky.
According to multiple media reports, the possibility after England captain Harry Kane committed his immediate future to Tottenham Hotspur.
On Wednesday, Kane confirmed on social media that he will not leave Spurs this summer, bringing an end to City’s pursuit of the 28-year old in this transfer window.
Sky Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Jorge Mendes flew in on Wednesday to settle Ronaldo’s future amid reports that he wants to leave and the club are willing to let him go.
Sources have told ESPN‘s Rob Dawson that City have not dismissed the possibility of signing Ronaldo.
