Frenchman announces ‘i wont be surprised’ to see star join Chelsea


William Gallas has tipped Chelsea to sign Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo in the January window.

Ronaldo is one of the greatest players in the history of football – but he has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons because of his interview with Piers Morgan last weekend.

It has been suggested that he is now done at Man United and there has been alot of speculation about where he could end up in the coming transfer windows – with Chelsea linked with a deal

Owner Todd Boehly considered a move for the Portugal legend last summer and may decide to revive his interest if he gets the backing of boss Graham Potter.

‘I think that Cristiano Ronaldo will leave Manchester United after the World Cup,’ Gallas told Genting Casino. ‘I won’t be surprised to see him go to Chelsea either.

‘He was honest and spoke from the heart and I think everybody is a little bit surprised by what has happened to him at United this season.

‘The only people who know what was said about his role and importance in the team are him and the manager.

‘When you look at what Erik Ten Hag did to him, putting him on the bench, for a player of Ronaldo’s standing, it’s difficult to understand, but he accepted it.

‘When Ten Hag is asking a player like Ronaldo to come off the bench for the last two or three minutes, he is showing him a lack of respect.

“It would be better to give those minutes to some younger players. Ten Hag has to respect what Ronaldo has done throughout his career.’
