£484k-a-week Ronaldo could sign for Chelsea – fans told!
Chelsea could still sign Cristiano Ronaldo because Thomas Tuchel desperately wants a goalscorer –
Ronaldo is a player that has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons this summer after news broke that he would like to leave the Manchester giants – he wants to be playing in the Champions League
And that has led to reports all over the media that Chelsea are very much interested in trying to sign the Portuguese star – as Thomas Tuchel wants to add for fire-power to that attack
But no official move has been made – despite all the constant speculation – but according to journalist Simon Phillips – Chelsea could still sign Ronaldo this summer as he is in desperate need of signing a proven goal-scorer
What has been said?
He told GIVEMESPORT: “You can’t rule it out, purely because Tuchel wants a goalscorer and Ronaldo is certainly that guy.
“Boehly has always wanted Ronaldo, it’s always been pushed by Todd Boehly, but until now Tuchel has always said no. He could change his mind, depending on other circumstances and other targets.”
The claim come after Paul Merson suggested that Ronaldo would solve all of Chelsea’s problems if signed –
He told Sky Sports: ‘Chelsea were outstanding against Tottenham on Sunday, they dominated the match from start to finish, but they haven’t got a goalscorer or centre-forward and that cost them three points.
‘Despite their domination, Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris made just one save. That tells you all you need to know.
‘I cannot believe they didn’t or haven’t gone in for Cristiano Ronaldo. He just ticks all of the boxes Chelsea are lacking
‘Playing for Chelsea is not like playing for Manchester United, who are working from the halfway line. Chelsea are on the edge of the box, dominating games.
‘Chelsea have unbelievable wing-backs, they dominate football matches, if they were putting the ball into the box for Ronaldo I would dread to think how many goals he could score.
Will Chelsea sign Ronaldo?
The simple answer is no!
His wages are massive – his ego is massive and his age will be an issue – Chelsea may see it as a waste of time as they have more long-term plans
