Etihad Stadium side ready to make mammoth record breaking offer.
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo could follow Jose Mourinho out of Spain at the end of the season.
Sport says the two most likely destinations for Ronaldo are Manchester City and AC Milan.
Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has been encouraged by news Ronaldo is building a holiday home at Lake Como and made no secret of his admiration for the former Manchester United star.
At City, Sheikh Mansour has the resources to beat all comers for the Portuguese.
Last year, it was claimed City were prepared to put €170 (£142m) MILLION aside to bring Ronaldo back to the Northwest, but the attacker refused to even consider the offer.
If there is one team in the world who would make an offer of this size for one particular player then that one club would be Man City and that one player would be Cristiano Ronaldo. However, this would surely never occur on the grounds that the Portuguese international is clearly a former Man United hero and therefore could never contemplate a move to the Blue half of the city, right?
