City have yet to make a formal offer for the 36-year-old, say reports, but a deal has been struck between player and club and all that remains is for Juventus to accept the inclusion of a Manchester City player.
In fact, reports in France suggest the 36-year-old and his entourage are "seeking to engineer" a transfer in the coming days.
And according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes arrived in Italy on Thursday to try and organise a move away from the Serie A club.
He said: "Cristiano Ronaldo's agent Mendes is in Torino. He's looking for options for Ronaldo - PSG are not interested.
"Mendes approached Manchester City to sign Ronaldo - still NO bid. Juventus want €30m, Man City are not intentioned to pay any fee & want to keep Gabriel Jesus."

Tense situation. There's still NO official bid on the table from Man City - Mendes is talking directly with the club. Juventus have no intention to let Ronaldo leave on a free. They want €28/30m.
Thoughts on Ronaldo potentially joining Premier League champions Manchester City his spell at Old Trafford? Is it the right move?
