AC Milan are readying an offer for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, according to reports in Italy.
TuttoMercatoWeb claim that Milan’s Chinese owners have given the green light to invest €150m for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has been informed of the intention to make a move, while the report states that Milan director Marco Fassone and Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes have spoken about Cristiano in “a concrete way”.
This comes after reports that Milan’s directors met Mendes in Sardinia earlier in the week to discuss his other clients; namely Renato Sanches, Falcao and Diego Costa.
There were rumours shortly after the meeting that CR7’s name had been brought up, but nothing lending itself to concrete interest.
Zinedine Zidane spoke about the future of Ronaldo on Thursday, adding fuel to the rumours: “Cristiano Ronaldo? I hope BBC will be confirmed for this season, but everything can happen until August 31.”
Let’s be honest, this might be one dream that is too difficult to achieve, but being linked with such names is enough to get excited about just how ambitious the new ownership is.
