Manchester City have offered Cristiano Ronaldo a two-year deal, that’s according to a source in Italy.
The Italian Serie A contenders are reported to want a swap deal for Gabriel Jesus, City's Brazil striker who scored 14 goals in 43 appearances last season.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes, is said to be in Turin for discussions with his star client.
City are poised to swoop in a proposed deal that would pay the Portugal captain between €14 million ($16.5 million) and €15 million ($17.6 million) a season, according to Italian transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio.
The reigning Premier League champions may have been hastened by the surprise announcement from Harry Kane that he plans to stay at Tottenham until at least the end of the season.
Although Ronaldo is out of contract at the end of the season and appears to be keen to leave, Juve are said to be anxious not to lose their top scorer for the last two seasons for nothing.
