Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has only one realistic destination if he eventually leaves Old Trafford this summer.
According to Italian transfer expert, Gianluca Di Marzio, Chelsea are the only realistic destination for Ronaldo this summer.
Ronaldo is expected to leave Manchester United for greener pastures this summer after informing the club of his desire to play in the UEFA Champions League next season.
Speaking to Wettfreunde, Di Marzio said: “It’s hard to say what the right choice is for him because I thought Manchester United would have been the right choice for him. Because he came back home. He really wants to play in the Champions League. His aim is to continue with his Champions League records. His agent is trying to find the best solution for him for next season. That is why he is talking to some clubs.”
He added: “Chelsea are entering a new era, and even if it’s ‘just’ an image deal for the new owner and chairman, this could be a topic for the whole world to talk about. He could play in the Champions League with new ’emotions and ambitions’. I don’t think there are other big solutions for him right now.
“PSG won’t sign him, as they have Messi, Neymar and Mbappe. It’s difficult to find another club that will give him the opportunity to play in the Champions League. Italy is impossible for him. So, I think Chelsea could be right for him. But it depends on him and what he wants. If he wants to play in the Premier League and Champions League, Chelsea is the only club at the moment.
“I don’t think Cristiano could go to Barcelona. He’s a (Real) Madrid player at heart. So I don’t think he could join them. Barcelona want Lewandowski, and they will try to sign him until the end. If Cristiano Ronaldo wants a different kind of experience, a move to MLS is also an option.
“I know they want Cristiano in MLS. If not this year, then probably next year. But I think he will definitely go to MLS before the end of his career. Manchester United will also want to be paid. Last year, they struck a deal with Juventus, so I don’t think Manchester United want to lose all the money.”
