While Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at MU is worrying the team’s fans, recently there has been information showing that if Ronaldo leaves, he will be able to join Chelsea, MU’s rival in the Premier League. League. Even Chelsea will not have to spend too much money to recruit CR7.
Ronaldo is looking for a way to escape and MU will have to sell it cheap
According to Peter O’Rourke, a reporter with sources at Chelsea, the amount that Chelsea spends to buy Ronaldo from MU will only be around 13-14 million pounds, a pretty cheap figure but reflects the fact that Ronaldo has 37 age. MU anyway, only spent 13 million pounds to buy Ronaldo from Juventus, so they can’t ask for much, even if it is asking for money from a direct competitor.
A challenge coming in this case is that if Chelsea negotiates with Ronaldo about the contract, it will have an “upper door” advantage. The reason is because Ronaldo needs to leave MU after this club does not have tickets to the Champions League, and Chelsea if not buying Ronaldo can still welcome another striker even at a more expensive price. Not to mention Ronaldo has had his salary cut in half at MU due to not reaching the top 4 target, and Chelsea is not planning to pay a too high number for him, estimated at no more than £ 300,000 / week.
But Chelsea’s challenge comes in another matter: Paris Saint-Germain has shown signs of jumping into the race. According to Bruno Andrade of the Portuguese channel CNN, the inexpensive fee makes PSG interested for two reasons: 1) MU will definitely want to sell Ronaldo to a foreign team rather than a domestic rival; 2) The commercial benefits that Ronaldo brings to PSG will be huge while the costs are not too high.
However, PSG will not promise anything about the starting position for CR7, they have advisor Luis Campos to plan the construction of the main frame of the team and the striker targeted by Campos for the starting position is a young striker. Gianluca Scamacca by Sassuolo. Ronaldo will only be used by PSG when the team needs to rotate, while Chelsea seem to approach Ronaldo with the intention of using him to start.
