How About Ronaldo to Chelsea?
The recent revelation coming out of Spain relating to Cristiano Ronaldo, could signal the start of the biggest transfer story of the summer.
The Portuguese player, who is set to win the Ballon d`Or, for a fifth time, has stated that he wants out of not only Real Madrid but also Spain.
Having fallen foul of the tax authorities over tax fraud, with a sum of £12.9 million being mentioned, associated with revenue from image rights, the Portuguese forward has decided a move away from Spain is what he desires.
Naturally, his former club, Manchester United are being discussed as a possible destination, as are Paris Saint-Germain.
There is also the suggestion being bandied out by the press that Real Madrid, in a desperate bid to hang on to their superstar, are willing to pay Ronaldo`s tax bill if he is found guilty of tax evasion.
But, if Ronaldo is keen on getting out of Spain this summer, how do the Vital Chelsea membership feel about landing the superstar?
Real Madrid have a huge release clause in the contract of the 32-year-old but it is believed that a fee of £175 million would secure a deal.
But any such move for the player leaves so many questions to be answered:
1 - Would he be interested in a move to the best city in the world?
2 - At 32-years-of-age is he too old to command such a fee?
3 - Could Chelsea fight off the attraction Old Trafford holds for Ronaldo?
Just three obvious questions.
But a huge positive to such a deal would be the huge influx of commercial revenue associated with CR7.
