Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly considering a move to Manchester City, but only if the Eastlands clubs is prepared to break the bank to get him.
According to The Sunday Mirror, the Portuguese attacker is reportedly demanding £400,000 per week to sign with Manchester City.
Ronalod not only wants an astronomic salary, but has also sought assurances that he will be the club’s highest paid player, will be handed the No 7 shirt and the captain’s armband at Eastlands.
The Sunday Mirror also reported that Ronalod has been bragging to friends that City have tried to entice him with pictures of a Bentley stuffed with cash.
“That’s what they’d have to pay to get the world’s best player,” Ronaldo is quoted as saying.
A source close to the Portuguese player claimed: “Cristiano says there has been contact between him and a third party. He says that he is extremely flattered at the lengths they’re willing to go to.
“He claimed that they will pay him what it takes to make him a Manchester City player.
“He says he wants £400k as taxes are higher in England.”
There had previously been reports that the Ronaldo had a fractured relationship with coach Jose Mourinho, and that Real may be willing to cash in on their asset.
