Spanish daily ‘AS’ has reported that an agreement has been reached between the club and the player, and that what’s left is for Manchester City to strike a deal with Juventus.

A two-year contract has been agreed with the player, which would see him remain at the Etihad until 2023 and earn 15 million euros after tax each year.

Manchester City would like to involve Raheem Sterling in the deal, but it is understood that Juventus hold a stronger interest in Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus.

Italian newspaper ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’ has reported that a meeting was held this morning between Juventus’ directors and Cristiano’s agent, Jorge Mendes. Stakeholders in the meeting decided that the Portugal international player would be allowed to leave for 25 million euros.
