CRISTIANO RONALDO wants to join Chelsea.
The Real Madrid star has been linked with a Bernabeu exit in recent weeks.
Reports have claimed the Portugal international has told Real president Florentino Perez he’s desperate to leave the club at the end of the season.
And according to Spanish transfer outlet Don Balon, Ronaldo has told his agent Jorge Mendes to sort a move to Chelsea.
They claim Ronaldo thinks Manchester United cannot afford to sign him and he’s keen to live in London.
Don Balon add that the Real star is desperate to return to the Premier League.
Chelsea is his preferred destination, with United the attacker’s second option.
Ronaldo has had a hit-and-miss start to the season this time out, with the 32-year-old netting just one La Liga goal in seven appearances.
Real are back in action this weekend, with the La Liga champions travelling to Atletico Madrid.
A win for Real against Atletico at the Wanda Metropolitano could trim the gap to Barcelona to five points.
Real already trail rivals Barca by eight points after just 11 games in La Liga.
