Manchester City have been offered the chance to sign Cristiano Ronaldo between €14m-15m a year in wages to join them from Juventus, according to Italian transfer expert, Gianluca Di Marzio.
The Premier League champions want to sign Ronaldo on a two-year deal.
The 36-year-old is out of contract next summer and Juventus are open to sell him to save on the £500,000 a week wages they pay him plus tax.
City are now keen on the former Manchester United forward, after Harry Kane announced he is staying at Tottenham Hotspur this season.
Pep Guardiola needs a striker in his squad following the departure of Sergio Aguero to Barcelona.
City have until the transfer deadline on Tuesday to secure a striker.
Ferran Torres, predominantly a winger, started as the central striker against Norwich on Saturday, with Gabriel Jesus deployed as a right winger.
Jesus is the only recognised senior striker at the club, while academy forward Liam Delap, 18, is set to stay rather than leaving on loan.
