Los Blancos will accept huge bid for Ronaldo.
MANCHESTER CITY will have to spend big if they are going to land Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo, who joined Real for a world record £80m fee in 2009, has become increasingly unhappy with life at the Bernabeu even though he is considered alongside Lionel Messi the best player in the world.
The Portuguese talisman has been courted by a number of clubs in recent weeks, most notably affluent French side PSG who are looking to sprinkle more stardust to their glittering squad.
There has even been rumours of a return to Manchester United, whom Ronaldo left on amicable terms with and he has a good relationship with manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
AS suggests it would take a bid of £160m to prise Ronaldo away from the Bernabeu.
£160m is a lot of money but Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably one of only a few footballers on the planet in the ‘priceless’ bracket, so it would be a shock if Real Madrid decide to sell the Portuguese star unless they absolutely have to.
That said, Ronaldo is reportedly disgruntled at the Santiago Bernebeu, admitting earlier he the season that he was ‘sad’ at some aspects of life in the Spanish capital.
If the 27-year-old demands a transfer, Los Blancos could be forced into accepting a mega-offer from PSG or Man United.
But could the Red Devils really afford to re-sign the well-preened forward? While PSG boast unlimited petro-dollars courtesy of their Qatari owners, United are in debt up to their eyeballs and it seems unlikely the Glaziers would sanction such a deal, even for a player of Ronaldo’s quality.
