Ronaldo has reiterated his desire to hold talks with Premier League side Manchester City.

Anyone who's been tracking the Brazilian legend's progress in recent months would assume that by this time Ronaldo would be simply desperate to get his future sorted before it's too late.

It has been reported this week that El Fenómeno is being tracked by Italian trio Sampdoria, Siena and Roma.

The Ronaldo camp is keen to settle on a club that can help ease him back to full fitness -- he snapped a tendon in his knee in February -- before offering him top-class football.

However, the 32-year-old has managed to muddy the waters once again by refusing to let go of his apparent dream: joining Manchester City's Brazilian revolution.

Asked about the Italian interest in him at present, the former Milan forward responded, "Yes, I've been approached by many clubs, but if City make their offer again I'll consider it. I'm strong and I believe in one or two months I'll be playing at 100 percent."

Citizens boss Mark Hughes was desperate to land Ronaldo in the summer, but it remains to be seen whether or not he'll take the risk now that his striking pool is overflowing.
