I am wondering if there is any substance in this at all? Let's look at the bigger picture for a second to try and understand why Chelsea continue to be linked with Cristiano Ronaldo.
The player himself has described his time recently in Madrid as "sad". He would be the best player in the world and would clean up at the Ballon D'or without question if it wasn't for a little Argentinian player over at Barcelona. His goal record is second only to Messi and since he moved to play up top, he has been a revelation.
It's his statement of being sad this is the most intriguing of all. Why on earth would you be sad earning the money he does, playing for one of the biggest teams in the world as the star man? Could it be that he misses Premier League football?
Florentio Perez the Madrid President as expected is already talking about rebuilding the Madrid team around him as the focal point of the side. The problem is, if Ronaldo has stated he is sad, will he sign a new contract bearing in mind he only has two seasons left of his current deal? If he refuses to sign, his value decreases this time next season and would imagine Real would want to capitalise on the biggest return they could expect from their huge investment to take him there in the first place.
There is the issue of Manchester United having first refusal on him if he is sold by Madrid but I don't think he would feel the same playing for David Moyes as he would have done for Sir Alex Ferguson. I just can't see him going back there. Also, don't believe any reports of a fall out between him and Jose Mourinho, that's simply not true.
Looking at Chelsea we are used to there being a "marquee signing" each season at the club. We have been linked with all sorts of names but there has literally been nothing from the club at all. We keep hearing agents or clubs claim that contact has been made but there has been nothing.
Falcao now looks like he is off to Monaco with Rodriguez and Lewandowski is off to Bayern Munich. Chelsea were linked but nothing, just pure speculation.
Could it be that Chelsea and Jose Mourinho in particular, are working on a deal that would bring Cristiano Ronaldo to Stamford Bridge? Think about it for a second. Ronaldo to Chelsea and with the money Madrid recoup from him, they would spend on Gareth Bale! Chelsea and Mourinho would have their marquee signing and would then mould his team around Ronaldo!
It could be pure speculation but then again anything is possible with Roman Abramovich as we have seen before!
