He is currently in the final year of his contract with the Old Lady who are asking potential suitors for a transfer fee of about €25m (£21.3m) transfer fee, which could be a major stumbling block along with his £500,000-per-week wages at the Allianz Stadium, talkSPORT claims.
However, no official big has been received for Ronaldo and there is still a long way to go, but a deal could be sealed before the close of the summer transfer window on Thursday.
Sky in Italy are reporting City are willing to offer Ronaldo a two-year contract, with a salary of £12.8m-per-season (€15m).
