Manchester City have been linked with a shock move for Juventus player Cristiano Ronaldo. While a great player the rumors have begun that a Gabriel Jesus plus cash deal could be in the works. (h/t TuttoMercato).

One of the pieces is as much as 50m euros could exchange hands plus Gabriel as Cristiano comes to the blue side of Manchester.

Frankly, it’s a shocking rumor as I have not seen any indication the player wants to leave Turin nor do Juve have any interest in this type of swap.

Giving this credence is TuttoMercato, as they are usually solid rumor wise, but this seems a bit far fetched.

Adding to the intrigue is the many problems a cult of personality player CR7 is. From legal trouble in the U.S. to not being the best teammate and even moody at some points. This does not seem like a Pep and Txiki approved deal.

Ten, there is the Man United aspect as he is a known legend for the Red Devils, how would this impact that relationship? Many questions and few answers.

Thoughts on a possible Ronaldo arrival?
