Manchester United prepare to sell Cristiano Ronaldo amid strong interest from Chelsea

by Raj Dholakia


Manchester United are reportedly planning to sell Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese has made his intentions of leaving the club clear, and United, are said to be preparing for his exit.

According to Graeme Bailey(90 min),  the Red Devils are expecting a bid from Chelsea.

United are said to be willing to accept a reasonable fee of £15 million but want the buying club to pay all of his wages.

The report states:

“Jorge Mendes is now working on options for the player and we understand that Chelsea are ready to firm up their interest and lodge a bid.”

“It is believed United will allow Ronaldo to leave for a relatively modest fee of around £15m, but any club signing him would have to take on his wages of over £400,000-a-week – although Mendes has told interested parties he would take a pay cut.”

“Sources close to Chelsea insist that co-owner Todd Boehly, who is also interim sporting director, sees the chance of landing one of the biggest names in world sport too good an opportunity to turn down.”

Portuguese journalist Bruno Andrade also claims that United have finally succumbed to the pressure from Ronaldo and have agreed to sell him.

“Cristiano Ronaldo: Manchester United has accepted the pressure and is willing to sell. It wants around 15 million euros (or 13 million pounds) to open negotiations with potentially interested parties.”

Man United will now need to turn their focus on finding a replacement for the Five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
