When Chelsea made rapid moves in the transfer market, everybody was taken by surprise.
However, their intention to make a mark has now been taken to the next level. According to the latest reports, the Blues are reportedly preparing an offer for football icon Cristiano Ronaldo.
There is little introduction needed to CR7 and the five-time Ballon d’Or winner will boost any team he joins. Even though he is 35 years old, he still has plenty of football left in him owing to his high fitness levels.
The player has formerly played in Manchester United of course and joining Chelsea now will be a big blow for the Red Devils. Reports state that the key to signing CR7 will be negotiating with his agent Jorge Mendes who has a good relationship with the club.
The agent has reportedly told the Blues to go ahead and bid around €120 million for the Juventus forward. Although Ronaldo’s current valuation in the market stands at €40 million, he still has a lot of commercial value and Juventus are committed to keeping him as he is contracted to the Old Lady till 2022.
The Italian side paid €100 million for him when they signed him from Real Madrid back in 2018 and Chelsea’s bid of €120 million might just be enough.
As for the Blues, it will be a scary frontline with Werner, Ronaldo, and Ziyech lining up at the Bridge next season if the CR7 deal goes through.
Exciting times to be a Chelsea fan!
