Chelsea sent clear message about offering £500k-a-week star move


Former Chelsea star John Obi-Mikel has warned Chelsea about making a move for Cristiano Ronaldo

There has been alot said about the future of Ronaldo over the past few weeks and whether or not he will be a player that rocks up at Chelsea in the January window.

It is no secret that Ted Boehly would like to get a deal done and it is no secret that he would be interested in a move – but another of their former players have warned the Blues about a move for Ronaldo.

Mikel has slammed Ronaldo over his large ego and has warned his old club about making an offer: ‘I’ve never been a Ronaldo fan really,’ Obi Mikel told Dubai Eye. ‘For me, when a player has so much ego, I don’t really get it.

‘He’s never been one of my favourite players and that’s why I always go for [Lionel] Messi really.

‘I mean, if someone comes out and gives such an interview, what makes you think, if he signs for your club in January, he won’t do the same?

‘So, I mean, every club is going to be aware of that… but listen, he is Cristiano Ronaldo; he’s one of the greatest players ever to have played the game.

‘I think he’s going to get another club in January and continue his football career.

‘But for me, it’s just a horrible scenario, he’s done so much for the club, and to see it end this way, it’s just horrible.

‘On his part really, I would say that interview shouldn’t have been done, wrong timing as well.

‘It’s just not right. It doesn’t look right for such a player that has achieved so much in the game.’
