Man City drop HUGE Cristiano Ronaldo transfer hint after deleting Twitter reply to claims of transfer agreement
CRISTIANO RONALDO has been strongly linked with a move away from Juventus with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.
And Manchester City have emerged as the front runners for the five time Ballon d'Or winner's signature.
Speculation has intensified this afternoon after Manchester City's official Portuguese Twitter account dropped a huge hint about their reported pursuit of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The page responded to a tweet by outlet Mundo da Bola about Ronaldo joining the club, with a cryptic emoji – before deleting their comment just moments later.
City fans have been sent into overdrive after seeing the tweet, with one user saying: "Man City Portugal just deleted the tweet about ronaldo. I’m in love."
Another wrote "It's over, check man city portugal" with some fans believing a deal is on the verge of being done.
And as of today Ronaldo is available at odds as short as 1/3 to complete a money-spinning switch after a frenzy of activity in the betting market.

SunSport exclusively reported today that CR7 wants £510,000-a-week to join the Cityzens from Juventus.
The Serie A giants are said to want around a £25million fee for the 36-year-old, but City do not want to pay that.
Instead, City would allegedly prefer to give all the cash to Ronaldo by attempting to lure the 36-year-old with £26million over two years, according to respected Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
And after missing out on Harry Kane Pep Guardiola is reportedly going all out to get a deal over the line for CR7.
The Juve forward was BENCHED by head coach Massimiliano Allegri for their Serie A season opener against Udinese on Sunday as rumours swirled regarding his future.
But Real Madrid were the reported frontrunners for his signature at the time.
Now though Manchester City have emerged as the favourites to snap up the football icon after Ronaldo himself rubbished suggestions of a return to Madrid.
However, a sensational move to PSG to link up with Lionel Messi has also been rumoured should Kylian Mbappe end up at Real Madrid this summer.
