Juventus and former Manchester United superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has been reportedly linked with the Red Devils' rivals, Manchester City regarding a potential move - though his past comments reveal that such a move is very unlikely to happen.

Ronaldo's future at Turin has come under intense speculation following their poor performances last season, with it being understood that the Juventus management would be willing to sell the 36-year-old as they would not be able to afford his massive wage bill in the current financial climate.

City for their part are in the hunt for a striker following the departure of the legendary, Sergio Aguero on a free transfer in the summer, and now rumours have emerged that they could make a move for Ronaldo.

However, such a move looks unlikely considering that Ronaldo first spoke about City rumours all the way back in 2013 where he was far from keen to join the club.

"To play for City not United? I’m not going to do that. Why? Because my heart’s in Manchester United, that’s why. I can say it would be very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very difficult to play at Manchester City. Very difficult because of Manchester United."

Ronaldo for his part has remained mum on his future, and it will be interesting to see whether he does leave Juventus in the summer as his high wages make it unlikely that a lot of clubs could afford to land him.
