For Manchester United’s superstar Cristiano Ronaldo (37), who is willing to change, the transfer options are becoming fewer and fewer. Now the dream of FC Chelsea has also burst.
Chelsea boss wants Ronaldo, but not Tuchel: Chelsea will not sign Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo after talks between coach Thomas Tuchel and co-owner Todd Boehly, writes the “Daily Mail”. The American had met with Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, and then internally advocated a purchase.
Short, compact, clear
Tuchel rejects Superstar: After discussions with Tuchel, there is suddenly no more talk of it. According to the report, it is important for the coach to focus on the collective and not on individual players. Ronaldo attracts too much spotlight. According to the Daily Mail, Tuchel believes that access Raheem Sterling (who came from Manchester City for 56 million euros) is better suited to the role of strike leader.
Chelsea leaves money behind: Chelsea FC would undoubtedly have benefited enormously financially from Ronaldo’s transfer – gigantic sums would have been earned from jersey sales alone. But Tuchel’s decision against the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was purely for football reasons.
