Yes, you did read that headline correctly, Chelsea have reportedly made an offer to sign Juventus winger and general footballing legend, Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, the bad news is the source of this information.
Unfortunately the report is from Spanish outlet Don Balon, who let’s just say, have not got the best history for reporting potential transfer stories.
Silly season has well and truly started when you see stories such as these.
But what makes it even more unbelievable is the quoted fee that Chelsea have offered.
They claim that Chelsea have offered Juventus 120 million euros to sign Ronaldo, who is 35 years old!
Whilst he is still a world class player, and most Chelsea fans would welcome him and his experience to Stamford Bridge, an offer of that much really is laughable when you think that Chelsea are prioritising other signings this summer.
But at least it has given these Chelsea fans some entertainment for 5 minutes…
is this a joke?
