Premier League: Chelsea are serious about signing Cristiano Ronaldo

Chelsea’s interest in Cristiano Ronaldo is no bluff. It is real and goes far beyond the offer made by Jorge Mendes, who has knocked on several ‘doors’ in search of a Champions team that meets the demands of his best ‘client’.

He has been linked with Real Madrid, Bayern, PSG… even Athletic! There has also been talk of a romantic return to Sporting CP.

Now that Cristiano’s future is up in the air, Real Madrid publishes this: master of the authentic

However, as MARCA has learned, the team that is seriously considering signing CR7 is Chelsea.

Boehly wants an icon

Chelsea’s new staff with Todd Boehly at the helm, works against the clock. There is much work to be done…and Roman Abramovich’s successor does not want his first signing to be ‘anyone’.

Boehly seeks to present himself in society with a ‘fat operation’. He intends to give a blow of effect and in that line the potential signing of Cristiano makes sense. His arrival, at a media level, would be well above that of other players who are in the ‘blue’ orbit: De Ligt (Juventus), Ak (City), Raphinha (Leeds) and even Raheem Sterling (City).

Chelsea needs a flag to cling to and who better than Ronaldo. Even more after the three outings that Boehly found himself almost cooked. Rdiger y Christensen have put Real Madrid and Barcelona on a zero-cost course and Lukaku He has returned on loan to Inter.

United do not want to sell

Chelsea thinks of Cristiano. So far, all OK. The operation, however, is not easily feasible. The ‘blues’ have not yet submitted any firm offer and Manchester United is not up for the job, at least publicly to sell his franchise player.

It remains to be seen if the ‘red devils’ remain firm after Ronaldo has declared himself in rebellion. The former Real Madrid player, who has a contract until 2023, did not attend training for the third day in a row.

The demands of CR7

Cristiano wants to leave. What’s more, is he willing to give up his status as the highest-paid player in the Premier -receives about 30 million annually- and accept a considerable pay cut.

Now, he has made clear to Jorge Mendes a ‘sine qua non’ condition. His next destination has to be a team that plays in the Champions League and has options to win it. Cristiano intends to continue expanding his legend as the historical top scorer of the tournament (183 goals). But it is that, in addition, he hopes to win his sixth orejona and match Paco Gento at the top of the list.

Chelsea subscribes to the ‘tradeo’

There remains another unknown. How much is Chelsea willing to offer for Cristiano? And for how much could United let him out?

In this sense, there is an important variable to take into account. Boehly, who is also a co-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers and a shareholder in the Los Angeles Lakers, wants to transfer an American tradition to European football: tradeo (exchange). Juve have already turned down 40 million plus Werner for De Ligt. Will United accept a barter for Cristiano? Difficult, but we’ll see…
