Reports: Cristiano Ronaldo Linked With Shock Premier League Move
Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly been linked with a shock move to the Premier League.
According to The Sun, the Portugal captain is keen to return to the English top flight, and could end up at reigning champions Chelsea.
Ronaldo is apparently unhappy with life in Spain, and he thinks it may be time to return to the league that arguably made him into the star he is today.
There was talk that the Real star may want to return to Manchester United, but with the Red Devils having signed Alexis Sanchez, that door could now be closed.
The English publication believes Real Madrid are keen to secure the services of Chelsea star Eden Hazard, which could see Ronaldo going the other way.
"Ronaldo to Chelsea would be a stunning deal, but it makes a lot of sense if you think about it," a source told The Sun.
"Chelsea need more attacking players and if United don't want Ronaldo, it's very unlikely he would go to Liverpool or Man City because of the rivalry. So that leaves Chelsea as the only club who could afford his wages.
"It would also mean he is living in a cosmopolitan city, which is something that is important to him now he has four children."
It is believed the Portuguese is open to moving to the West London club, although it would not be his first choice.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has not fired on all cylinders this season, and his drop in form has got people questioning his commitment to the Spanish giants.
Ronaldo made 196 appearances in the Premier League for United, scoring 84 goals and assisting 45 further strikes.
