Manchester City are ready launch an amazing world record £95 MILLION bid for unhappy Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo. The Daily Star says City are working on an eye-watering four year contract offer to bring the former Manchester United star back to the Premier League.
Buying Ronaldo would mean boss Roberto Mancini having to sell players to clear space on City's wage bill for the 27-year-old, who is paid around £250,000 a week in Madrid.
So it is unlikely to happen until next summer, when they feel Real could be forced to cash in on one of world football's top talents for much less than his rumoured £1bn euro buy-out clause.
They feel the chance to sign a player of his class is too good to refuse - and hope to make some of it back in shirt sales and commercial tie-ups.
