City threaten to swoop for top United target.
Manchester City may be in a better position than rivals Manchester United to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, according to the Daily Express.
City are one of a number of teams keeping an eye on the Portuguese international’s situation at the Bernabeu, with speculation increasing that he could be in his final season with the club.
United are known to be desperate for a reunion with their former hero, but may regret their £150m spending spree during the summer as they now look in too much debt to afford the 29-year-old.
This may see City jump the queue for his signature, though it remains to be seen if the Old Trafford legend would be happy moving to the Etihad Stadium.
