Manchester United star expected to arrive in January
Manchester City’s new rent-a-quote owner Sulaiman Al-Fahim has revealed that the club will be bidding £140 million for Cristiano Ronaldo when the January transfer window opens.
He told The Guardian: “Ronaldo has said he wants to play for the biggest club in the world, so we will see in January if he is serious.
“Real Madrid were estimating his value at $160million (£90m) but for a player like that, to actually get him, will cost a lot more; I would think $240million (£135m). But why not? We are going to be the biggest club in the world, bigger than both Real Madrid and Manchester United.”
Citzens fans shouldn’t panic if this deal doesn’t take place though because moves for Fernando Torres, Cesc Fabregas and Thierry Henry are also being lined up.
