It can be recalled that Ronaldo shot into the limelight after playing for Manchester United before moving in to La Liga side Real Madrid.
British daily, the Sunday Mirror has reported that Ronaldo is bragging to his friends that he is sought after by Sheikh Mansour, the Abu Dhabi-based owner of English Premier League side Manchester City.
The Portuguese striker has reportedly told close associates that someone related to the Sheikh's family has got in touch with him informally with an astronomical package. He has also been reported as saying to a friend that he will consider playing for Manchester City if his three conditions are met.
First in the list of conditions is a salary of 400k pounds a week. The other two being his favourite no.7 jersey along with the captain's armband and a guarantee that he will always be the club's highest paid player.
A source close to Ronaldo has been quoted as saying, "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 pounds as taxes are higher in England."
Meanwhile, the football club on Jun 12, clarified that Ronaldo has not been approached by anyone related to them.
