Manchester City are preparing a world-record £100 million bid for Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, report the Daily Mirror.

After qualifying for the Champions League, the club's rich owners are looking for a marque signing to help kick-start a new era at Eastlands.

The Portuguese international signed for Madrid from Manchester United in 2009 for £80 million, and now City plan to bring the winger back to Manchester.

After winning the Ballon d'Or in 2008, Ronaldo made the switch to Madrid for a world record transfer fee.


Since his departure, United have won trophies in the following two seasons and can win a fourth European Cup if they beat Barcelona at Wembley next weekend.

City have since seen huge financial input help them soar up the division and after winning the FA Cup and qualifying for the Champions League, the club are now considered to be realistic contenders for top honours on the domestic and European stage.

The signing of Ronaldo, albeit ambitious, would signal huge intent from City, and further stoke the fire between the two sets of supporters across Manchester.

Despite his exit, United fans still adore Ronaldo after his scintillating displays helped the club win the Champions League in 2008.
