L’Equipe suggests that City are keen to pay Ronaldo’s wages, but are unwilling to pay for a transfer fee, with the Italian giants holding out for around £25m for the 36-year-old.
Their report, however, claims that the move will only be viable if Kylian Mbappe - who reportedly rejected a new five-year contract at Les Parisiens last month - trades the French capital for the Spanish, in a big-money move.
If that move does come to fruition, then football fans around the world could see Ronaldo and Messi - two of the greatest to ever play the beautiful game - link up as teammates, instead of opponents.
