The Blues will shift their attention to their next UEFA Champions League game where they will be at loggerheads with Salzburg after a 1-1 draw against Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United team at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly and his camp succeeded in enriching their squad depth this summer with the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucurella, Gabriel Slonina, and Raheem Sterling making a move to Stamford Bridge. One player that has been linked with a move to Chelsea is Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to reports coming from Daily Mail, Chelsea could make a shock swoop to sign Ronaldo.
The report notes that the 37-year-old faced disciplinary actions last week after refusing to come on as a substitute against Tottenham last Wednesday. Ronaldo went on to leave Old Trafford early without celebrating the 2-0 win with his teammates.
As a result, Ronaldo was omitted from United’s match-day squad to face the Blues last weekend as well as being forced to train alone for the remainder of the week.
Daily Mail adds that it is thought that new owner Todd Boehly was keen to secure a deal for Ronaldo but then-Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was against the idea. Now it is thought that a move will depend on G. Potter’s preference. It is yet to be seen if these reports are true.
