Chelsea transfers: Jose Mourinho ‘could bring Cristiano Ronaldo’
Chelsea transfers: Tony Cascarino believes Jose Mourinho could bring Cristiano Ronaldo with him should he return to west London
Tony Cascarino believes there is a possibility that Jose Mourinho could bring Cristiano Ronaldo with him to Chelsea should he return to Stamford Bridge this summer.
The Portuguese coach is the heavy favourite to take over from interim boss Rafael Benítez at Chelsea in the summer as he continues to be linked with an exit from Real Madrid.
It has also been suggested that Ronaldo is prepared to quit the Bernabeu this summer, with the 28-year-old linked with a return to Manchester United, as well as Paris Saint-Germain.
But former Chelsea striker Cascarino believes that Mourinho could take the Portugal international with him to west London should he secure a return to the club he managed between 2004 and 2007.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Cristiano Ronaldo ends up at Chelsea,” Cascarino told talkSPORT. “There are lots of times in football where managers leave a club and bring players with them.
“Everyone is assuming that he would go to Manchester United if he was to leave Real Madrid, which he probably will do, because it’s their last chance to get a really big fee for him.
“But Chelsea have broken the [transfer] record so many times and Mourinho has the same agent.”
