Lebouef suggests PL striker should join Chelsea if Aubameyang fails

'Maybe': Frank Leboeuf suggests PL striker joins Chelsea if Aubameyang doesn't work, Blues linked in summer

Frank Lebouef suggests that Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo should join Chelsea in the future.

Ronaldo, 37, has had a slow start at Old Trafford this season after falling out of the best line-up.

However, the Portuguese striker and footballing legend still scored an impressive 24 goals across all competitions last season in Man United colours.

He may be towards the back end of his illustrious career, but he still looks in incredible shape with a hunger to score even more goals.

Lebouef suggests Ronaldo

ESPN pundit and former Chelsea player Lebouef has put forward a suggestion that Premier League striker Ronaldo makes the switch to Stamford Bridge.

He thinks he’s a potential solution if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who joined the Blues in the summer, struggles to make an impact.

“If Chelsea can’t find the striker they want, if Aubameyang is not working for them, maybe he (Ronaldo) can go there if he goes for free. He would have the chance to play again in the Champions League,” Leboeuf told ESPN.

It was reported a couple of months ago in the recent summer window that Chelsea’s co-owner Todd Boehly was in talks with Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, to try sign the Man United attacker.

It’s an amazing idea to have the Portuguese superstar in West London, but surely it’s something that’s been left too late.

Don’t sleep on Auba

Hopefully, Aubameyang is going to show after the international break why Chelsea signed him from Barcelona.

The 33-year-old forward has had some more time to get fully fit and let his jaw injury heal, so perhaps Blues supporters can expect a bit more from him.

He’s a proven goalscorer that has bagged plenty in the Premier League before for Arsenal.
