TRIBAL TRENDS - TOP 5: Ronaldo favours Chelsea; Messi, Suarez fume at Neymar; Mourinho names three Man Utd targets;

It's that time of the week again where we look back over the past seven days and check out what articles Tribal readers have fancied the most.

And boy is their some interesting stories this week, and they of course involve Europe's biggest clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

No wonder this story was the most read on Tribalfootball this week.

Our favourite Spanish publication, Don Balon, claims that Cristiano Ronaldo favours a move to Chelsea.

The Real Madrid star certainly hasn't been himself so far this season - except in the Champions League - and the bust-up with Real captain Sergio Ramos has made for compelling news.

We've always expected that if Ronaldo were to return to England, he'd join his former club, Manchester United.

Will the lure of London prove too strong for the commercially invested superstar?

Meanwhile, Eden Hazard was quick to praise Davide Zappacosta for his performance in Chelsea's 4-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

The Italian, who arrived from Torino this past summer, has featured just six times in the league this season.

But he hasn't flown under the radar of his teammates, with Hazard mentioning his efforts after the resounding victory at the Hawthorns.

Manchester United fans rejoiced last Saturday following the long awaited return of the one and only, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

But Swedish knee specialist Markus Walden has warned his compatriot that it is likely he'll re-injure his knee.

Walden, who is acquaintances with Ibrahimovic's surgeon Freddie Fu, has said that three out of four operated ligaments are likely to break apart within the first 18 months after surgery.

Maybe this season is Zlatan's last hurrah?

Sport claims that United boss Jose Mourinho will be given full control over the club's transfer policy when he puts to pen on a new £19.5m-a-season contract.

At the top of Mourinho's targets are three players:

Gareth Bale, Antoine Griezmann and Ivan Perisic.

Oh, and Danny Rose and Harry Kane if they don't work out…

Good luck Jose!

Don Balon report that Lionel Messi and Luis Suarezhave been caught totally by surprise with speculation linking Neymar to Real Madrid.

The Brazilian left the Barcelona duo to join PSG this past summer in a world-record transfer.

The three are considered to be close friends, but it seems the relationship wouldn't remain that way should Neymar join Barca's hated rivals.
