Jorge Mendes contacts Arsenal & Chelsea for Cristiano Ronaldo transfer

Cristiano Ronaldo intends to leave Real Madrid this summer and has got his agent to sound out Arsenal and Chelsea over a potential transfer, according to reports.

The Portuguese star has grown frustrated with life in Spain recently and feels he was not adequately backed by Real over his tax court case last year, while he is also annoyed with his current salary.

Ronaldo wants wage parity with both Neymar and Lionel Messi, who were handed bumper deals with PSG and Barcelona, though Real do not want to commit to another new contract for a player who is 33 years old.

Ronaldo was scoring again against PSG, and would also consider a move to Paris. That has seen Ronaldo begin laying the groundwork for a summer departure, and according to Le10sport he wants to move back to England – and London specifically.

The former Manchester United winger wants his son, Cristiano Jnr, to be educated and raised in England, and is particularly interested in living in the capital.

Spurs have little interest, though Chelsea and Arsenal did not spurn Mendes’ advances despite having reservations over whether they could afford both the transfer fee and Ronaldo’s wages.

Real could offload Ronaldo in order to fund a move for Neymar in the summer. He currently has a €1 billion release clause, though Ronaldo is believed to have persuaded Real president Florentino Perez to permit him to leave for closer to £80m.

Ronaldo was in good goalscoring form on Wednesday night as he struck twice against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last 16 – both he and Mendes would consider a move to PSG if they cannot secure a move to London.
