Chelsea fans are looking interestedly towards our landlord here in the Football Transfer Tavern as he tells us of the claim coming from Metro.
This particular rumour involves the best player in the world – no not Diego Costa, Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Real Madrid forward has been linked with a move to both Manchester United and Chelsea in recent weeks and the fact that Jose Mourinho has already worked with his compatriot put Chelsea firmly in the running according to the rumour mill.
That is until the fact that the player and coach did not see eye-to-eye and were barely speaking towards the end of Mourinho’s time at the club emerged.
Even Mourinho himself made it clear that a ‘personal relationship’ would not see Ronaldo join his Blues.
The Special One claimed: “The relationship between Ronaldo and myself is non-existent. He plays for Real Madrid, I’m the Chelsea manager,
“You would not find us hanging around together. The relationship does not exist but the memories of his impact do.
“I have to remind myself that he is a goal machine who helped me become a Liga champion, win the Copa del Rey and the Supercopa.”
Chelsea fans. Do you think this is a good thing considering Ronaldo’s ludicrous wage demands or can you simply not put a price on his goals per game ratio? Let us know your thoughts below.
