REVEALED: The key reason Cristiano Ronaldo would FLOP at Chelsea

Posted by

Chelsea have been one of the teams most closely linked with Cristiano Ronaldo, but there’s a pretty good reason why they should steer clear.

Manchester United supporters will have been desperately hoping that Ronaldo stuck around for the second year of his contract, with the Portuguese superstar having scored 24 goals in 38 appearances last campaign.

However, the Times have today reported that Ronaldo has informed the club of his intention to leave. He wants the Red Devils to seriously consider any offers that are made for him between now and the transfer window’s end.

Chelsea, along with Bayern Munich, have been mentioned in the report as a potential destination for Ronaldo this summer, but there’s a bloody good reason why Thomas Tuchel and co should snub the chance to sign CR7.

Despite Ronaldo being the top scorer in all competitions in football history, none of his 800+ career goals have come at Chelsea’s home ground. He has 102 in the Premier League, zero at Chelsea.

Considering the Blues have had major problems over the years when it comes to recruiting a striker capable of finding the back of the net, you can’t help but wonder if even Ronaldo himself would be able to avoid the curse.

Chelsea spent £100m on Romelu Lukaku last summer – he too had never scored at Stamford Bridge. We all know how that ended, so it ought to be a lesson learnt the hard way for Tuchel…
