Manchester City fans are livid as it was revealed the Citizens will not pay the €25m (£21.4m) Juventus are looking for to part ways with Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Citizens are looking to bring in a new striker as they remain short in that area – as it stands, they only have Gabriel Jesus as a senior centre-forward – but they are running out of time before the end of the transfer window. Harry Kane had been a top target, but he has now decided to stay at Tottenham Hotspur instead.
Ronaldo is currently in Italy with Juve, but it seems he could be on the move this summer. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Portuguese star’s agent Jorge Mendes offered the player to the Citizens, but Juventus want €25m (£21.4m), a fee which City have no intention of paying.
The news was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Ronaldo news
“They paid 100mil for Grealish this club is literally a tinpot club I swear…”
“City guys are full of jokes,Let’s buy Cristano and use him for a year or so then we trigger Haaland deal next year , Then after we change formation to two gun Simple……”
“But we bought Grealish for 100m ? Make it make sense”
“That wage bill is scaring Txiki”
“no intention to pay 25 million…, what is this club doing”
“…..YOU WONT PAY 25 MILLION BUT WILL PAY 140 FOR KANE? My guys……Ronaldo would pay that back himself “
