Chelsea is said to be interested in signing Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo in January.
Ronaldo, 37, has been the focus of the media’s attention in recent days.
Erik Ten Hag confirmed that the Portuguese attacker refused to come off the bench against Tottenham in midweek. As a result, he was left out of Manchester United’s matchday squad for Saturday’s 1-1 Premier League game with Chelsea.
With so much speculation regarding the player’s future in the game, an intriguing transfer rumour surfaced last night.
Chelsea is interested in signing Ronaldo.
According to the Sunday World, Chelsea may be ready to rekindle their interest in signing Cristiano Ronaldo after being approached by the player’s agents earlier this summer.
The Blues are now tempted to attempt to recruit the worldwide superstar in the New Year, who the owners were interested in bringing in last summer.
According to the source, Stamford Bridge is one of his more probable destinations, with his antics against Spurs likely to lead to his departure from Old Trafford in January.
Man United and Ronaldo are reportedly planning to meet in the next 48 hours to discuss his future.
According to the Sunday World, the athlete may be prepared to accept a wage reduction in order to join another team.
A definitive decision on Ronaldo’s future might be made as soon as next week. There’s even a potential his contract with Manchester may be cancelled.

Finally, according to breaking transfer reports, a proposal has been circulated about Chelsea signing the Manchester United misfit on a short-term agreement with an option to extend for a second season if all sides are satisfied.
Every Chelsea fan is aware that there is always turmoil at Stamford Bridge, but surely the club doesn’t need the added craziness of Ronaldo arriving in the middle of the season.
His last behaviour at Manchester United, which was punished by Ten Hag, is enough of a deterrent, even before you consider the money aspect and what he may still give on the field.
Ronaldo, who Ruben Neves described as “amazing” last month, can still generate unique moments of brilliance. It would be a pity if Graham Potter’s Chelsea went down this road.
Chelsea manager Potter rated Ronaldo as “sensational” when he faced him as Brighton manager in May. “I’ve been really pleased with him,” he remarked. How he’s performed, how he’s aided his squad. He’s scoring goals and his mobility is outstanding.”
The majority of the footballing world adores Ronaldo the player for what he has accomplished as one of the all-time greats. Bringing him into your locker room, though, considering the full package that comes with the experienced striker, is just too much.
