Glen Johnson slams Chelsea over Ronaldo transfer move

However, Jonhson, a former Chelsea player has expressed his reservations about the transfer rumours linking Ronaldo to the club.

Whereas the Portugal international still courts huge admiration despite his advancing age, Johnson contends he would not be a good signing for his former club.

Speaking to GGRecon, the ex-player sensationally claimed that the transfer would be purely commercial if it happens.

"He may cost a fortune, but the club would probably make more by just having him. Signing Ronaldo is like signing a commercial deal," Johnson said.

"I don’t think Ronaldo can change Chelsea’s fortunes as a player now, but I think having him in the dressing room would," he added.
