A series of major updates on the Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester City front have been forthcoming on Thursday night.
Udinese fiasco Speculation surrounding the future of legendary attacker Ronaldo has of course come back to the fore in a major way over recent days.
This comes after the 36-year-old was benched for Juventus’ season opener versus Udinese at the weekend.
This move, according to widespread reports, came at the request of CR7 himself, with the Portuguese international having set his sights firmly on a transfer away from Turin ahead of the window slamming shut next week:
Cristiano Ronaldo will be on the bench for Udinese-Juventus. Official. 🚨🇵🇹 #Ronaldo
He’s NOT starting – it was a precise request from Cristiano because he hopes to find a solution on the market in the next days.

Premier League champions Manchester City, in turn, have been hotly tipped as a potential landing spot.
The Citizens of course recently missed out on Tottenham Hotspur hitman Harry Kane, with Ronaldo, in turn, having been identified as a viable alternative.
Etihad bound And, as outlined above, on Thursday night, a series of major developments in the CR7 saga have been forthcoming.
The info comes courtesy of Italian transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, who reports that the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner, a short time ago, emptied out his locker in Turin.
Ronaldo’s time at the Allianz Arena is said to have reached the ‘end credits’, with Juventus, for their part, already on the lookout for his replacement.
Man City, meanwhile, are primed to take advantage of the situation, with a €30 million offer for the veteran attacker, likely to be accepted by Juve, set to arrive via agent Jorge Mendes on Friday.
