Chelsea are serious about signing Cristiano Ronaldo

Chelsea's interest in want-away Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo is no bluff. The Blues are serious and they have every intention of making his signing happen.

The Portuguese has been linked with Real MadridBayern Munich, and even Atletico Madrid since asking to leave Old Trafford, with some even linking him with a romantic return to Sporting Clube de Portugal.

Chelsea are the most serious about signing the No.7, and they are in a position to offer him what he wants - Champions League football.

Boehly wants a superstar

New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is keep to sign a big name for his first arrival, and doesn't want to sign just anyone.

He is hoping to pull off something big, and few deals could be bigger than signing Cristiano Ronaldo.

He's also looking at Matthijs de LigtRaphinha, and Raheem Sterling, among others.

But Chelsea need someone to lead their line and Cristiano Ronaldo can do just that. They are also in need of a leader this summer, and the ex-Juventus man is also capable of filling that role.

United don't want to sell

Chelsea are keen, but Manchester United don't want to see the player, less so to a direct rival in the Premier League.

The player hasn't returned for pre-season training yet though, so far missing three days since the squad were expected back to work under Erik ten Hag's orders.

Chelsea might even be willing to offer players and cash for Cristiano, as they have offered Timo Werner to Juventus for De Ligt.

Cristiano's demands

He wants out of Old Trafford, and he has no doubts. He wants to play in the Champions League, and he's willing to give up his status as the highest-earning player in the Premier League to make it happen.

He has communicated his intentions to agent Jorge Mendes, so there is still a lot of time left this summer for something to happen.

As well, it should be remembered that he was in a similar position at Juventus in the summer of 2021, and didn't leave until the season had already got underway and he even played for the Italian side at the beginning of 2021/22 in Serie A.
