It could be an offer too good to refuse for the Blues, who are about to lose the services of centre forward Romelu Lukaku as he has agreed to return to Inter Milan according to report.
Chelsea would not only be acquiring the services of one of the greatest players in the history of football, it will be a major blow to Manchester United from its main rival.
If Ronaldo leaves United this summer, he will be the eighth departure without a single incoming transfer having occurred.
It would also leave United without any recognised centre forwards in the squad, other than converted wingers Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, both of whom had horrible seasons last time out.
Mason Greenwood continues to be suspended by the club as Greater Manchester Police pursue criminal charges against him.
Edinson Cavani leaves the club on Thursday as his contract expires.
Lately Cristiano Ronaldo was also linked to German football giant Bayern Munich who’s looking forward to replace Robert Lewandowski with CR7.
