​Chelsea hero Nevin warns against signing Ronaldo: Could be worse than Lukaku


Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes that Cristiano Ronaldo would be a bigger flop than Romelu Lukaku if he signs.

The Portuguese is attempting to find a new team before the transfer window closes.

Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United, as they are not in the Champions League this season.

A move to Chelsea was touted earlier in the window, but Nevin is not a fan of Ronaldo at present.

"I think Ronaldo would be even more of a poor fit than Lukaku was for Chelsea," Nevin told BonusCodeBets.

"When Lukaku signed last season, people thought he would be the missing link but I thought by signing him, Thomas Tuchel was throwing his style of play out the window, if indeed it was Thomas who signed him! It didn't make sense to me.

"While Ronaldo scores a lot of goals, off the ball you are almost playing with ten men which you cannot do in the Premier League and be competitive.

"Some Chelsea fans may love it, but there have been some cases over the years around Chelsea which have made them look like a circus.

"If they are trying to catch Man City, they can't be a circus.

"If he is going to join, he has to be told he won't play every game and may only play a 45 minutes but he has to work for the team.

"If he does, he could then be a brilliant signing for Chelsea."
