Jorge Mendes – Cristiano Ronaldo‘s agent has “touted” CR7 with Chelsea. Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly was intrigued by the concept of recruiting an iconic figure like Ronaldo.
Sources have revealed to ESPN that Ronaldo would be willing to take a pay cut to join Chelsea. CR7’s priority is to compete in the UEFA Champions League next season.
PSG is looking to sell Neymar because the Brazilian player is no longer in the team’s plans. The Brazilian striker is ready to land at Stamford Bridge. Neymar wants to try his hand at the English Premier League.
Chelsea is interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo and has been in talks with the Portuguese superstar’s agent, Jorge Mendes.
Chelsea coach worries about the salary to recruit 2 stars
Chelsea is ready to make a shocking transfer for Cristiano Ronaldo. However, this deal was hindered by coach Thomas Tuchel himself.
President Todd Boehly does not feel concerned about the salaries of Ronaldo and Neymar. Money is not an issue for Chelsea, the Blues are confident they have enough financial capacity to pay these amounts, but Todd Boehly wants to ask for the opinion of coach Thomas Tuchel to make a decision.
Coach Thomas Tuchel is still hesitant to buy superstars. The German coach doubts the ability of Ronaldo or Neymar to adapt to the intense play at “The Blues”. Moreover, he worries that their sky-high salaries will disrupt the team’s salary structure.
Currently, the Chelsea leadership has not agreed to buy or not to buy. The London team’s internals needs more time to find a common voice.
Chelsea is also afraid of going in the same footsteps of the Romelu Lukaku deal. Last summer, “The Blues” bought one of the worst signings in the team’s history for a record price. Therefore, the team considers the purchase very carefully this summer.
President Todd Boehly convinced coach Thomas Tuchel to accept this transfer
Chelsea chairman and owner Todd Boehly is a huge fan of Cristiano Ronaldo but he has to convince coach Thomas Tuchel to bring in the Portuguese superstar.
Boehly wants to make his first mark on the transfer market for the Blues after taking over last month for £4.25 billion. Ronaldo is one of the targets, alongside Raheem Sterling, Raphinha, and Matthijs de Ligt…
CR7’s request to leave MU prompted Chelsea to approach after Boehly himself met with agent Jorge Mendes last month to explore the situation.
The reason is said to make CR7 want to leave MU
Ronaldo is said to be very disappointed in the process of strengthening MU’s forces as well as the prospects are not very bright next season. Chelsea could become an attractive destination if he continues to aspire to make a mark in the Champions League arena.
Tuchel asked to strengthen the central position, where Romelu Lukaku had gone, and Timo Werner was not convinced, the defense also urgently needed to replenish after parting with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.
The Blues are in a good position to recruit both Sterling and Raphinha, but for Sevilla’s Jules Kunde and Juventus’ Matthijs de Ligt, the situation is much more difficult due to the high price tag.
After nearly a month of the transfer window, Chelsea has yet to bring in any recruits despite rumors involving Raheem Sterling and Rafinha. If successfully recruiting Ronaldo or Neymar, the team’s attack is said to be significantly enhanced.
