The Cristiano case heats up: Mendes arrives and there is an offer from City

The very long soap opera on the future of Cristiano has entered its decisive phase. In these hours, as reported by ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, his agent Jorge Mendes has arrived in Turin to seek a solution to his case with the Portuguese.

The player, as AS has been reporting since March, wants to leave Juventus, and after the refusal of Real Madrid (In spring and early August), the options of PSG and Manchester City remain open, although as this newspaper can confirm at this time “only one offer is real” and for now the other has not occurred.

The French option, obviously, It depends on the outcome of the Mbappé case: with his sale to Real Madrid, seeing Cristiano and Messi together would be possible. In the last hours, however, The Citizens have gained strength due to the words of Harry Kane, who announced his intention to stay at Tottenham. Cristiano never did the same for Juve because he is clear that he will try to leave until possible and, as this newspaper advanced, has already been learning about the City and Guardiola.

The English now They could speed up to get the services of the Portuguese, the only top striker left on the market at an affordable price. Juventus asks between 25 and 30 million for his transfer, but I would also accept a barter with Gabriel Jesus, his first name on the substitute list for the lead. According to ‘Sky Sport’, City has already sent its proposal to the player: a contract until 2023, with a net salary of 15 million. In Calcio, the ex-Madridista charges 31 ‘kilos’ until June 30, 2022.

La Vecchia Signora continues to filter that “no firm offer has arrived“, but in Italy nobody rules out that this could happen in the next few hours. Mendes’s trip suggests that something is about to happen. We will see.
