Chelsea plotting a SHOCK £60m bid for ex-Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo

According to reports, the Blues have set aside a staggering £60m to try and lure the Portuguese international away from the Bernabeu.

Ronaldo, 29, has been heavily linked with a move away from the Bernabeu in recent weeks, and reports have suggested that the former United star has fallen out with Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti.

That news has prompted United to prepare a £55m bid the former fan favourite, who scored 118 goals in 292 appearances for the Red Devils.

But that news has also alerted Blues boss Jose Mourinho, who is willing to trump Man Utd’s bid for the current Ballon d’Or holder.
