“As far as the player himself is concerned, he wants to leave. He wants to play in the Champions League. That is the most important thing for him. For personal reasons, he is leaving Manchester United. There are also suggestions that it would be a better fit for him if he could.

“There has been a lot of talk that Manchester United do not have a formal offer for him. I hope clubs like Madrid are interested in signing him.

“These two clubs still have executives who are not convinced they should sign a player like Ronaldo. But he is one of the most famous people in the world. What can he do on the pitch? It’s not just that he can do it “for the profile of the club and for the commercial income off the pitch.”

Merson: Ronaldo will solve Chelsea’s striker problem

In his latest Sky Sports column, Paul Merson explains why Cristiano Ronaldo is the final piece in Chelsea’s jigsaw puzzle.

“I can’t believe they didn’t or didn’t get Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s everything Chelsea lacks.”
