After a bombshell report suggested that Juventus could sell Cristiano Ronaldo, one of Manchester United's biggest rivals have been urged to sign him.
The 35-year-old's contract with Juve only expires at the end of the 2021/22 campaign, but Mundo Deportivo has reported that the Serie A giants could be prepared to sell him after the current season.
Paris Saint-Germain were previously linked, but former Chelsea midfielder Andy Townsend has now insisted that Manchester City should go after him should he become available.
"He's unbelievable in the air, which we've seen in a Juventus shirt already," he told talkSPORT.
Scroll through the images below to see where Ronaldo sits among football's all-time record goalscorers:
"If he became available and Juve wanted out on him and Man City needed goals for their team, then I don't think you should hesitate in going to get Cristiano Ronaldo.
"He's 35 and I still think he's got 18 months in him. If he came to Man City and the way they play, I think he could go there and get 25 in his first season."
Townsend also explained why he feels Ronaldo could be a better fit for Pep Guardiola's side than longstanding rival Lionel Messi, who has also been linked with a switch to the Citizens.
"If you want goals, then I think he's still the ultimate goal machine," he added.
"I know Messi and there has been so much mileage on the debate over the years, but I still think Ronaldo still has the desire and want to be remembered as the greatest. He will in some people's eyes but he won't in others.
"He's still got a desire to score goals. More than anything on the field now, he just wants to score goals.
"He's at that period where his eyes light up every time there's a free-kick at whatever angle. Whenever he gets the chance to shoot, he will. Even when others are better placed, forget that."
