Jose Mourinho wants Cristiano Ronaldo at Chelsea

Jose Mourinho is set to become the next permanent manager of Chelsea, and the Real Madrid boss wants Cristiano Ronaldo to follow him to Stamford Bridge, it has been claimed.

According to the Daily Express, Mourinho's tenure at the Santiago Bernabeu will come to an end in the summer, and the Portuguese will replace Chelsea's intermin manager Rafael Benitez.

Roman Abramovich will greet the former Chelsea coach with an open cheque book, and Mourinho reportedly hopes the Russian will be able to complete a sensational deal that would see Ronaldo arrive in west London.

Mourinho reportedly knows the former Manchester United superstar is unhappy at Real Madrid and, once becoming Chelsea boss, the 50-year-old will test the resolve of Los Blancos with a £60 million bid for Ronaldo.

The 28-year-old's future with Real Madrid has been the subject of constant speculation all season, with a return to Manchester United touted as a summer transfer window possibility.

Manchester United are reported to be exploring the possibility of bringing Ronaldo back to Old Trafford, although the Premier League leaders may now have to battle with Chelsea for his signature.

Ronaldo, however, is surely unlikely to agree to a switch to Chelsea given his allegiances to Manchester United, although an opportunity to continue working with Mourinho may be too good to resist for the Portugal captain.
