Jose Mourinho will try and tempt Cristiano Ronaldo to join him at Chelsea if the former moves to Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid in the summer"


If Jose Mourinho returns to the hot seat at Chelsea next season, he is planning a sensational move to bring Cristiano Ronaldo with him.

The current Real Madrid manager has been widely tipped to take the manager's job at Stamford Bridge in the summer, with Roman Abramovich and the Portuguese reportedly repairing their previously fractured relationship.

Mourinho has been the man that the majority of the Chelsea fans have wanted to see take the soon-to-be vacant job at Chelsea, and the Blues faithful could be in for a bigger treat if Mourinho indeed has his way.

The Portuguese, if he takes over at Chelsea, is planning an audacious £60 million ($90 million) summer swoop on Real Madrid for Ronaldo, who is yet to agree on a new contract despite multiple negotiations, according to the Daily Express.

Mourinho is well aware of the situation surrounding Ronaldo at Real, and with the former Inter Milan manager enjoying a good relationship with the Portuguese superstar, he is hopeful of tempting Ronaldo to make a move back to the English Premier League.

Manchester United are also interested in bringing back one of their all-time greats, but are struggling to create the funds require for such a big-money move. The club have spoken to their sponsors Nike and Chevrolet to help in completing the transfer.

Ronaldo has mentioned several times of his love for United and the respect that he still has for Sir Alex Ferguson. So, it would seem unlikely that the 28-year-old would agree to a move to one of United's title rivals Chelsea; but then as they say, stranger things have happened.

Meanwhile, the Blues have been given encouragement over a move for Radamel Falcao, after his agent Jorge Mendes reportedly told the scouts and interested clubs that his client is indeed looking for a move away from Atletico Madrid in the summer.

Falcao is considered to be Chelsea's No.1 target for next season, but there have been contrasting reports over a proposed move with some suggesting Chelsea had already completed the signing, while others have suggested otherwise.

There is still plenty of time before the summer transfer window opens in July and it remains to be seen what the situation will be at that point in time.
