Reports have it that the 37-year-old wants to be sold if United receive a suitable offer for him. It’s a huge headache for new manager Erik ten Hag, who has already seen almost all his rivals go from strength to strength during the summer transfer window.
As reported last week, new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly spoke with Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, and Ronaldo’s future was one of the many topics discussed.
Boehly, who is in charge of Chelsea’s transfer business this summer, is keen to grab headlines to kick off the new era. Whether it’s Ronaldo, who earns around £500,000 a week
Ronaldo could be that man, as he seeks a return to the Champions League – apparently having no interest in playing in the Europa League for the first time, which would seemingly rule out a move to Jose Mourinho’s Roma.
Bayern Munich are also linked as they risk losing Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, while a sensational move to Real Madrid has also been touted by bookmakers.
