Chelsea have been offered the chance to sign Cristiano Ronaldo. The possibility of capturing the Man United striker was discussed in a meeting between his agent Jorge Mendes and the Blues’ new owner Todd Boehly. The report comes in the midst of speculation over Portugal international’s future.
Many sources suggest Ronaldo is unsettled at Theatre of Dreams and wants to leave the Red Devils in the summer transfer window. Cristiano was notably linked with a move to Bayern Munich recently, though the Bundesliga giants have denied the transfer rumour.
Having recently roped in Sadio Mane from Liverpool, Bayern Munich are not in a position to add another footballing superstar. It could significantly alter the club’s financial structure, even though the Bundesliga giants did entertain the possibility of signing the 37-year-old centre-forward for a time.
Bayern Munich’s exit from the equation opens up the chance for Chelsea to snap up the Man United icon. It could prove to be a massive coup for new owners, who are actively looking to promote the club not only in the United States but to the rest of the world.
Tuchel has confessed in the past that he has found it difficult to manage top footballers in the past, especially during his stint with PSG. The German manager is unlikely to accept the burden of managing the Portuguese centre-forward and continue to build his team around footballers that suit his system.
