Chelsea submit offer for Cristiano Ronaldo say Spanish press

Chelsea have submitted an offer of €115 million for Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo report Catalan daily, Mundo Deportivo.

The Stamford Bridge club have been linked with a move for Ronaldo in a number of British media reports recently but Mundo Deportivo now claim Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has sanctioned the mega offer in a bid to bring the Portuguese star to the Premier League.

Ronaldo is already the world’s costliest player after his €90 million transfer from Manchester United to Madrid in the summer of 2009, but his phenomenal scoring achievements for the Spanish club mean Chelsea would have to smash that total to take him away from the Santiago Bernabeu.

Chelsea have endured a frustrating campaign this season and are languishing in fifth place in the Premier League. However a 1-0 victory over Benfica in the Estadio la Luz on Tuesday night makes them favourites to progress to the semi-final of the Uefa Champions League, where they could face Madrid’s la liga rivals Barcelona.

Roberto Di Matteo is currently in charge of the blues until the end of the season but Chelsea have been linked with a host of big-name managers, including Jose Mourinho, as Abramovich looks for someone who could rebuild an ageing squad at Stamford Bridge.
