Chelsea are reportedly leading the queue to sign Manchester United attacker Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.
The Portuguese star has informed the Red Devils of his desire to leave the club amid their failure to qualify for the Champions League.
This is likely to attract interest from several clubs, but according to The Sun, the Blues are best placed to sign the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
Chelsea owner Todd Boehly recently held a meeting with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes. The 37-year-old’s future was a topic of discussion.
Ronaldo could be enticed to join the Blues with the prospect of winning trophies as well as the chance to play Champions League football.
However, the big question is whether United would consider doing business with the Blues, who are their main rivals for a top-four league spot.
They would not want to strengthen their attack by allowing Ronaldo to join them, and may look for offers from abroad for their prized asset.
