Since Tuesday evening, Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer a Manchester United player. Released from his contract with the Red Devils, the Portuguese still fantasizes about Chelsea owner Todd Boehly. However, it will take more to convince coach Graham Potter.
The divorce was expected, it is no less brutal. After a start to the season marked by controversy and his dismissal of the starting XI, Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed with Manchester United for an amicable departure. A sad end for the Portuguese star in the club which made him grow in the eyes of the world. Above all, uncertainty hangs over the rest of his club career. It must be said that last summer, the clubs did not scramble to enlist him. Only Chelsea and its owner Todd Boehly showed interest.
If CR7 makes a big effort, Boehly will crack
Four months later, the boss of the Blues is still ready to welcome CR7 to his home. This is revealed by several media, including CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs. The latter specifies that Jorge Mendes, Ronaldo’s agent, is forcing the Blues. However, Boehly will have to be unanimous in his own club and it is not won. Already cold on the subject with Thomas Tuchel at the time, he is barely more advanced with the successor of the German Graham Potter. Only a considerable financial effort from Cristiano Ronaldo would tip the balance in this case.
This remains the situation. Todd Boehly sees the appeal of Cristiano Ronaldo. Graham Potter is less convinced. Ronaldo on a free, and with a pay cut, probably makes Boehly even more intrigued. A move has consistently been called “complicated” by sources, even after Tuchel sacked. https://t.co/wWl9TdNZMT

Suffice to say, the door of Chelsea remains very little open at the moment. Ronaldo will have to seduce or look elsewhere with, if possible, the minimum of requirements.
