    EXCLUSIVE – Ron claims he has an offer

    Cristiano Ronaldo has urged Manchester United to name their price so he can trigger a move that is already on the table, writes NEIL CUSTIS.

    Superstar Ron and his agent, Jorge Mendes, held showdown talks with the Old Trafford hierarchy this week in a bid to resolve his future.

    Mendes told United chiefs he had a live offer but the club must slap a transfer fee on his head to get the deal done.

    United refused and said they were not letting Ronaldo go.

    The Red Devils also balked at the suggestion they should simply release him on a free transfer because of what was described as his “loyalty” to the club.

    Ronaldo has a year left of his current deal but United have the option to extend that by another 12 months.

    And with United’s Premier League opener at home to Brighton just nine days away, both sides are at an impasse.

    City shock as ‘Silva is offered to Barca’

    Manchester City have reportedly offered Bernardo Silva to Barcelona for £67million.

    That’s despite issuing a hands-off warning to the Spanish giants just 10 days ago.

    Silva, 27, was strongly linked with a City exit last summer.

    And despite being one of their best players, the Portugal international continues to be tipped for a move.

    Paris Saint-Germain are thought to be interested.

    But Barcelona have made no secret of their desire to make Silva their next statement signing.

    Sporting Lisbon are in talks with Manchester United about signing Cristiano Ronaldo on a season-loan loan.

    Ronaldo reiterated his desire to leave the club during meetings at Carrington this week, according to the Athletic.

    Initial talks are taking place, say reports.

    It is, however, claimed that Sporting chief Ruben Amorim isn’t sold on the idea as signing Ronaldo would drastically “change the dynamic” of the team.

    AC Milan have reportedly joined the race to sign Manchester United defender Eric Bailly.

    Manchester City have reportedly offered Bernardo Silva to Barcelona for £67million.

    Tottenham’s Joe Rodon is reportedly “in talks” over a loan deal with Ligue 1 club Rennes.

    Leciester are reportedly targeting Greek goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos from Benfica as a direct replacement for Kasper Schmeichel.

    Schmeichel has called time on his career at Leicester as he seeks a new challenge and has agreed to join Nice.
