Cristiano Ronaldo (37, Portugal), who looks good with the red uniform of Manchester United (hereafter referred to as Manchester United), an English professional footballer, has raised the possibility that he will change to Chelsea’s blue uniform.

ESPN, an American sports media outlet, reported on the 5th, “We have confirmed the recent contact between Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes and Chelsea’s new owner, Todd Boley.”

Ronaldo, who moved to Manchester United from Juventus in August last year, scored 18 goals in 30 appearances in the Premier League during the 2021-2022 season.

However, reports emerged earlier this month that Ronaldo wants to move to another team after Manchester United’s 2022-2023 Champions League appearance was frustrated.

It is an expression of his will to play in the UCL game even after leaving Manchester United.

He also did not attend Manchester United’s team training that began on the 4th for family reasons, sparking rumors of a breakup with United.

Ronaldo is on a contract with United until June 2023 and is said to earn a weekly wage of around £500,000.

ESPN said, “Bayern Munich (Germany) and Paris Saint-Germain (France) are also mentioned as destinations for Ronaldo, but Chelsea have not decided whether to make an official offer for Ronaldo to Manchester United.”

However, he speculated that “Chelsea’s owner, Boley, seems to be interested in the signing of Ronaldo, although his heyday has passed.”

He also predicted that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel’s plan for next season’s attacking team will be a variable.

It is reported that Chelsea are likely to return Romelu Lukaku (Belgium) to Inter Milan (Italy) next season and are considering signings such as Hafinha and Raheem Sterling.

Ronaldo’s high ransom may also be an obstacle to his transfer with Manchester United, but ESPN said, “Ronaldo will be willing to lower the price to play in the UCL next season.” “I think he will accept joining Chelsea, our longtime rival,” he said.
