Cristiano Ronaldo's close pal and journalist hints at next club for Man Utd striker with Instagram follow | The Sun

CRISTIANO RONALDO'S close pal Edu Aguirre has hinted at a transfer to Chelsea for the Portuguese ace.

The Manchester United star wants to leave Old Trafford this summer in order to compete for trophies, with the Blues a leading contender for his signature.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Ronaldo's friend Aguirre has just started following Chelsea on Instagram.

While a link may seem far fetched, Aguirre has form for predicting CR7's moves.

In 2018, the El Chiringuito host broke the news that Ronaldo wanted to leave Real Madrid after nine years.

Possibly for this reason, eagled-eyed fans jumped on his decision to start following Chelsea.

Boehly is said to have met with agent Jorge Mendes last month with Ronaldo on the agenda.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is claimed to be less keen, however.
