Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United, and it looks like he is prepared to do everything in his powers to get that move away.
Sources: 18 attackers that are on Chelsea’s transfer shortlist this summer.
He failed to turn up to training yesterday citing family reasons, and today, he has done exactly the same again, right before his team mates are set to head off on their pre-season tour. There are huge doubts now that he will even make that, and it looks very unlikely.

Chelsea are considering making a move to sign him, hence why we are well and truly involved in this dramatic story already.

Somehow, I think he will end up going elsewhere, but there is no way you can rule out a Chelsea move yet.
