It has already been suggested that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel isn’t that keen on signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
Last week, The Independent ran a report on how the Chelsea boss would be given the final say on transfers this summer, but the club had not yet made a concrete decision on whether to make a move for Ronaldo.
Miguel Delaney went on to claim Tuchel had little interest in pursuing a deal for the 37-year-old striker.
A recent report from the Evening Standard appears to back up those claims – by stating Tuchel isn’t overly excited at the prospect of signing Ronaldo.
Ronaldo is a great player, no doubt, but the noise surrounding his future will take away from our focus ahead of the new season if it persists. Erik ten Hag made it clear this morning that Ronaldo is part of his plans, so maybe there is a greater chance of him staying than leaving this summer.
If the German coach doesn’t want Ronaldo, which I think looks clear, can we carry on with our own preparations?
It has been well documented that Chelsea owner Todd Boehley had a meeting with Jorge Mendes to discuss a potential transfer for Ronaldo, but it has resulted in very little interest from Stamford Bridge, which strongly suggests the talks were proposed in Lisbon.
The player has been given extended leave due to personal issues and the media are doing all they can to disrespect that.
Ronaldo is old enough to know he can’t leave United if he doesn’t have a club to join. He has one year left on his contract which should be respected.
