Chelsea set to benefit from Ronaldo's deal to Juventus

Chelsea transfer news Aleksandr Golovin

"It would be great to see Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo playing together again", he referred to the rumours that Juventus is working on a 100 million transfer to bring Ronaldo to the Italian Serie A.

But who is the Chelsea manager?

Chelsea players have received emails from Conte's staff asking them to report as usual for training next week. At the time of writing, the players have no idea who will be their manager come the start of the 2018/19 campaign, who will be leading their upcoming pre-season campaign, nor when it is even due to begin.

Chelsea are still trying to appoint Sarri, but are yet to seal the deal for him to take over at the Bridge. However, Chelsea are in desperate need of firepower after Diego Costa left the club and Alvaro Morata failed to live up to his price tag last season.

If true, it would be a sensational coup for the west Londoners as Higuain has been one of the most prolific strikers in European football over the past decade having scored 282 goals in his 556 career appearances.

Reports emerged on Tuesday that Juventus had lodged a bid to Real Madrid for Ronaldo , who is heading into his 10th season with Los Blancos.

He struggled to find his form in Chelsea as he was able to score just 11 goals for the club and his position was under threat with the signing of Olivier Giroud from Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Roma goalkeeper Alisson is reportedly Chelsea's top target if Courtois is sold this summer, but the club also know that they must reinforce their squad rather than simply replace those who leave if they are to get back into the Premier League's top four next season.
