Premier League champions, Manchester City have rejected the opportunity to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus this summer, according to L’Equipe.
This is despite Juventus demanding just €25 million (£21m) for the Portugal captain.
Although the former Real Madrid star denied this in a statement last week, multiple reports in Europe are insisting that Ronaldo is pushing to leave the Italian club before the transfer deadline.
Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, is said to be currently in Manchester as he also represents City midfielder, Bernardo Silva, who is looking to leave Man City this summer.

L’Equipe reports that Mendes is attempting to engineer a swap deal which would see Silva join Juventus, while Ronaldo heads in the opposite direction to City.
However, the Italian giants are understood to be holding out for a €25m (£21m) fee for Ronaldo in addition to the swap deal and City are said to have no interest in meeting that valuation.
The Times also reports that Pep Guardiola’s side are reluctant to make Ronaldo one of their highest earners at the club given his current earnings at Juventus.

UCL: Chelsea Will Be Difficult To Overcome In Milan, Says Kaka
Real Madrid and AC Milan’s former midfielder, Kaka has hailed ‘very consistent’ Chelsea following their defeat of AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The Brazilian, a former AC Milan player, admitted the Blues ‘deserved’ to beat the Italian side.
It was Chelsea’s first win in the Champions League under Potter, thanks to goals from Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James.
The Italians will likely need to beat Graham Potter’s men in the reverse fixture next week to stand any chance of reaching the last 16.
“Chelsea deserved that result, said Kaka.
“I think they have a very consistent game they controlled the game the whole time. They didn’t create many opportunities but they took advantage of the opportunities they had.
“Most of them [chances] conceded by Milan and we were talking about the absence of the players and it’s important to keep the players that couldn’t play tonight but for Milan, it was a poor game.
