Chelsea football club of England wants Cristiano Ronaldo to join regardless.
Cristiano Ronaldo is not currently a priority for Chelsea
after being discussed as an option for the London club in
the summer transfer window. That’s according to the
latest from Fabrizio Romano, as he insists it’s too early to
tell what the London giants will decide to do in winter as
they focus instead on appointing a new sporting director.
Todd Boehly took care of the Blues’ transfer work in the
summer, but it makes sense that he’ll want a specialist to
come in now and help with talent spotting and transfer
Fabrizio Romano has previously spoken about Boehly
being keen on Ronaldo, but it is not yet clear if Tuchel’s
departure as a coach and ex-Brighton manager Graham
Potter replacing him makes a future deal more likely. As
for Cristiano, Romano has reiterated that the striker stays
focused on Man United.
The Blues had a busy summer, bringing in Pierre-Emerick
Aubameyang up front, so it might be that they won’t find
room for Cristiano to come in as well when the transfer
window re-opens in winter.
“My understanding at the moment is that there is no talk
about Cristiano Ronaldo as Chelsea are busy with different
priorities, including the new director. That means it’s too
early to know about Chelsea’s intentions for January. For
now, he is a Man United player, and he remains 100%
professional in training as he looks to get back into the
starting lineup,” Fabrizio Romano said.
