A link between Manchester United and Chelsea is growing with reports of the Portuguese superstar being offered a move to the Blues. But has the Portuguese player himself rubbished the idea? After all, he has already admitted he is happy where he is in the Premier League. So what are the details of Jorge Mendes’s Cristiano Ronaldo to Chelsea transfer plan? Are they any more serious than what we’ve heard so far?
Thilo Kehrer offered
Chelsea have been offered a deal to sign the German midfielder Thilo Kehrer from Paris Saint-Germain. This has been reported by Bild journalist Christian Falk. Chelsea, however, have said that they do not have any interest in signing Kehrer. Kehrer is a three-time French league champion with PSG. He has also proven his versatility by playing both centre-back and right-back. He has also played as a right-back for Germany in the past.
A move to Chelsea for Cristiano Ronaldo would also benefit other clubs. Arsenal and Manchester United are in the market for left-sided fullbacks. Thilo Kehrer has been linked with the Premier League in the past. However, he would need to beat out rival Thierry Puel and Roberto Martinez to be given the Chelsea job. Thierry Henry has made no secret of his desire to take over a team by himself.
While Ronaldo has been linked with Chelsea in the past, his agent has spoken with the French champions about a possible transfer. While Ronaldo and Neymar would form a dream team, the same goes for Kylian Mbappe. Both would be the perfect fit for the Premier League. As for the rest of the Chelsea hierarchy, they are likely to splash the cash.
While the deal between the Premier League and Real Madrid is still far from done, it is still possible that the players involved will be able to sign for a fee that matches the value of the players. Chelsea have a number of players they want to sell to fund a summer transfer. If a deal can be completed, the deal could be worth millions. The new manager of Real Madrid will be able to attract Ronaldo to Chelsea.
Thilo Kehrer wanted by Chelsea
Chelsea are in the market for a central defender this summer and have been linked with PSG, but the French champions are refusing to sell. Thilo Kehrer has been linked with a move to Chelsea and has been in talks with the Blues. However, the German defender has turned down the move. Chelsea are said to have no interest in signing Kehrer and are instead looking for alternative targets.
PSG are looking for EUR25 million for the midfielder and he is happy at his current club. It is not clear if Chelsea will accept this deal, but there are a few things to consider before making a decision. For starters, PSG are demanding that Chelsea pay their current wage and Kehrer is not in a rush to leave the club. If Chelsea do make a move for the German, it will be a big boost to the club’s transfer market.
Having had a mixed transfer market, Chelsea are now trying to clinch a centre-back. The French giants have already signed Nordi Mukiele to compete with Sergio Ramos for a starting place. However, there is no guarantee that Kehrer will stay at PSG. The French club are desperate to make space for new signings and Kehrer’s future could be in doubt after the arrival of the new centre-back, Sergio Ramos.
Bayern Munich have been in talks with Kehrer’s agent about a transfer. Kehrer is expected to cost around EUR25 million and would have joined the Bundesliga side. According to Transfermarkt, Bayern Munich have made an offer for Thilo Kehrer. The German international has made 34 appearances for PSG last season and is currently competing with PSG for a regular spot. He has one year left on his contract and is looking for a move to the Champions League.
Raphinha offered to Chelsea
According to reports, Chelsea are considering signing Raphinha from Leeds United but the Brazilian is more interested in moving to Barcelona. The Blues have been in discussions with AC Milan over Hakim Ziyech, although the deal would involve a loan with an option to buy in 2023. However, if the Blues do opt to move for Raphinha, the club must be prepared for a lengthy transfer battle with Barcelona.
Earlier this month, the Portuguese international’s agent, Raphinha, met with the new owners of Chelsea. The new owners of the club are reportedly intrigued by the Portuguese international’s global appeal. However, the move is unlikely to take place without the approval of manager Thomas Tuchel. The new owners of Chelsea are unlikely to sell their star player to a Premier League rival.
The Brazilian has previously said he wants to join a Premier League club. It is rumoured that Mendes has held talks with Chelsea owner Todd Boehly and has offered the striker a PS14m deal. However, it’s unclear whether he’ll travel to Thailand or Australia. If he does decide to move, he’ll most likely want to leave the Premier League at the end of the season.
The new owner of the club has indicated that he is serious about signing Cristiano Ronaldo. Manchester United insist that the Brazilian superstar is not for sale. However, the news has already reached Chelsea’s ears as the club has lost Bruce Buck and Marina Granovskaia. Boehly has now been named interim Sporting Director and Chairman, two positions previously held by Marina Granovskaia. Boehly is eager to live up to the triple role in Chelsea.
Christian Eriksen linked with Manchester United
During his time at Brentford, Christian Eriksen has been linked with a move to Manchester United, the club that signed him last summer. The Danish midfielder played for the Bees for six months and subsequently proved himself at the top level, securing a huge move to Old Trafford. However, there were rumors of a move to Tottenham, as the Denmark international spent seven years at Spurs. Eriksen has now signed a three-year deal with Manchester United, but a medical remains to be performed before he is officially signed.
A move to Manchester United would make Eriksen the third Scandinavian player to play for the Red Devils. He has played for Brentford since 2013, and scored once and provided four assists in 11 appearances. According to reports, Man United have placed a contract offer on the table for the Danish international, and his agent, Fabrizio Romano, claimed that Eriksen was close to deciding his future. Manchester United have stepped up their efforts to sign the Danish midfielder, and they are prepared to pay PS150,000 a week for a two-year deal.
The former Tottenham player’s heart condition caused him to leave the club. Eriksen had to undergo a procedure called ICD surgery, which required him to be fitted with a pacemaker. The Italian league does not allow players with heart defects to play in the top division. The Norwegian had previously declared his heart condition as a “no-brainer” when signing for Brentford in January. In fact, he made his debut two weeks later – 259 days after the collapse. The team went on to win two games in a row, and Eriksen was a major part of both.
While Inter Milan and Tottenham were interested in signing Eriksen, the Danish defender was keener on staying with his hometown club. Inter Milan’s rules prevented them from selling Eriksen to another club. Moreover, Eriksen’s heart attack caused the club to slash his contract with them. In a similar vein, the club is currently hoping to sign Lisandro Martinez from Ajax. It is not clear whether he will join the team during the pre-season tour.
Luis Suarez linked with Los Angeles FC
The Uruguayan striker has been linked with a move to Los Angeles FC after several reports indicated that he was interested in the MLS. Suarez, the Uruguayan national team’s all-time leading scorer, has played for clubs including Liverpool, Atletico Madrid, and Barcelona. He also has experience playing against legendary players such as Carlos Vela. According to Twellman, the Uruguayan striker could be set for a move to LA.
The Uruguayan striker is a free agent after the expiration of his contract with Atletico Madrid. But unlike Gareth Bale, Suarez is not looking to join Inter Miami. According to ESPN’s Taylor Twellman, the former Barcelona star is in talks to join Los Angeles FC, who are top in the Western Conference after 21 games. But Suarez has been refusing to discuss the details of the deal, so it is still unknown whether he will actually sign with Los Angeles FC or a different club.
It’s not clear whether Suarez will sign with LAFC, but the club is trying hard to land the Uruguayan striker. Suarez would likely join existing megastars Giorginio Chiellini and Gareth Bale in California. He would also join fellow Italian Vince Chiellini, who has joined LAFC for free. And he would play with Gareth Bale, Carlos Vela, and Vincenzo Chiellini, the 37-year-old former Juventus defender.
Meanwhile, Inter Miami is stepping up its bid to sign Suarez, who would be a free agent. David Beckham’s side wants him no matter what it takes. River Plate is also interested in signing Suarez, but it is unclear whether the club would spend as much as Miami on him. However, it is worth noting that the South American club has a history with Suarez, which would make it a good move for the Uruguayan star.
