SHOCKING! Former Manchester United Player Blocked Chelsea’s Mega Deal For His Teammate

published :

Reports recently have claimed that club team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo had in fact talked James Rodriguez out of his Chelsea transfer despite Real Madrid giving him the green light. And the Colombian turned down the offer thanks to the Portuguese starlet, rejecting an enticing opportunity to play in the Premier League.


Roman Abramovich sanctioned the eye-watering offer and Real chiefs were more than happy to accept it and the report claims that Rodriguez could have actually earned more money if he moved to Stamford Bridge, but still decided to stay in the Spanish capital.

Chelsea don’t appear to have missed the ex-AS Monaco man much, storming to the top of the Premier League under new boss Antonio Conte after winning 14 consecutive Premier League matches. Although the Blues would have liked to have Rodriguez replace the Brazilian midfielder, Oscar, who left for Shanghai SIPG.

It was reported that Chelsea made a bid for around £78 million bid for Rodriguez earlier this month, a fee that would have been a new club record. However the South American later admitted,” We all go through bad moments, but a new year starts for me now,” James later said after an excellent performance in the Copa del Rey last-16 first leg against Sevilla. “I am staying in Madrid” he added.

The former Manchester United star is thought to be a close friend of the forward, and told him that he should stick it out with Los Blancos despite finding it difficult to regularly start games under manager Zinedine Zidane.
