Keen to leave Manchester United this summer, Cristiano was recently offered by Chelsea.
It definitely feels like the end… After having skipped the resumption of training at the start of the week, officially for family reasons, Cristiano Ronaldo will not fly for the summer tour of Manchester United in Thailand and then in Australia. Therefore, the divorce between the Portuguese superstar and the Red Devils seems inevitable.
Now charge Jorge Mendes, the famous agent of CR7, to find him a new base. Which will not necessarily be easy given the emoluments of the fivefold Ballon d’Or on the side of Old Trafford. A club, however, seems able to satisfy financially and sportingly the former number 7 of Real Madrid. It is chelsea.

A transfer of €16m?
It must be said that Todd Boehly, the American businessman who recently bought the residents of Stamford Bridge, wants to strike a blow on this summer transfer window. The new owner of the Blues would thus see a good eye the arrival of CR7. And according to the media Soccer Insider, he is said to be willing to put €16m on the table to buy out the last year of the Funchal native’s contract.
Inevitably, 16 million euros for a player of Ronaldo’s standing seems ridiculous. Especially since never in his career has the 37-year-old striker been transferred for such a small amount. Even when he left Sporting for United, the amount of the operation had risen to 19 million euros. However, his advanced age and his desire to leave may justify this proposal from the Blues.
