Roman Abramovich is plotting a sensational move to bring Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to Chelsea, according the Express.
As the Express report, it was revealed earlier this week that Ronaldo wants to leave the European champions this summer, which has placed Chelsea on high alert.
The Express believe that Abramovich is extremely keen to bring the four-time Ballon D’Or winner to West London, and feels as though signing him could convince Antonio Conte to stay put in SW6.
It is reported that Ronaldo will likely cost any potential suitors a whopping £150million, but Abramovich appears to have a plan which would see Chelsea sign the Portugal captain for a lower amount.
According to the Express, Abramovich could offer Eden Hazard in exchange for Ronaldo. The Express note that Hazard is a long-term target of Real Madrid, and offering him in exchange for Ronaldo could give Chelsea the advantage in the race to secure his services.
