According to The Telegraph, the Chelsea football club may be making an offer to Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo soon.
Though no official communication between Real Madrid and Chelsea has been made regarding the Portuguese striker, the UK news source has stated that should Chelsea make a play for Ronaldo, it will like include his teammate Gonzalo Higuain.
A bid for both players would likely cost the London team around $133 million. In 2009, Madrid paid Manchester United $120 million for Ronaldo and his performance tends to justify his cost.
Despite his performance for Real Madrid, Ronaldo does face his share of controversy. During his time with Real, Ronaldo has butt heads with some of the team’s Spanish players and even with the club supporters, meaning he could feel a bit of a push to leave Madrid.
On Sunday, the 27-year-old became the fastest player to reach 100 goals in Spanish league history. He is currently tied with 24-year-old Leo Messi (Barcelona) with 35 goals for the season.
What do you think? Will Cristiano Ronaldo leave Madrid for Chelsea?
