Chelsea transfer news: Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo

Back to the summer transfer window, The Athletic’s David Ornstein reported that Chelsea were interested in striking a deal for Manchester United and Portugal forward Ronaldo, who had indicated to the club that he wanted to leave that summer, according to Fabrici Roman.

Despite remaining at Old Trafford after the close of the transfer window, the men’s international top scorer of all time ended up terminating his contract with Erik ten Hag’s side, following an explosive interview with the which he participated with Piers Morgan.

And seconds the mirrorthe Portuguese legend is now said to be open to a move to Chelsea, although the article also claims that Saudi club Al-Nassr have made a £173m-a-year bid for him to join the Middle East.

However, Jones believes Boehly would also be interested in a move for Messi out of contract and believes he would suit the club better than Ronaldo.

What has Jones said about Chelsea?

Jones told GiveMeSport: “If Boehly was that interested in Ronaldo, it’s a no-brainer that he would look at Messi in the same way.

“You’d probably say there’s a better chance Messi fits in at Chelsea than Ronaldo.”

What’s next for Messi and Chelsea?

Jones has already said it GiveMeSport that Messi’s signing would depend both on the finances involved in the deal, and on the player’s willingness to link up with the Stamford Bridge outfit next summer.

Sky Sports have suggested the 94-goal Argentine striker is keen to stay in Europe when his PSG contract expires next summer, potentially ruling out the possibility of him signing for Inter Miami in 2023.

However, the Albiceleste captain’s main focus for now will be trying to lead the South American side to their third World Cup title, with the striker already scoring three goals and providing one assist in the tournament so far, as reported. Transfer market.

So a potential move to Chelsea will be at the back of Messi’s mind at the moment with more pressing matters to focus on at hand, but this is certainly a move Boehly could be looking to get over the line in next summer, especially if he is unsuccessful in his pursuit of Ronaldo.
