Chelsea issue ‘soap opera’ warning as Thomas Tuchel makes Cristiano Ronaldo transfer decision

Thomas Tuchel has been warned not to sign Cristiano Ronaldo as the Manchester United striker intends to leave the club this summer.

The 37-year-old has been widely linked with a move away from the Red Devils, with the west Londoners emerging as a possible destination.

According to football.london, the Blues have made a bid for the Portugal international with Ronaldo eager to compete in the Champions League this season.

According ESPNthe evergreen talisman is open to a move to Stamford Bridge but Chelsea are unsure whether to pursue a move with Tuchel having the final say.

Tuchel isn’t convinced, although Todd Boehly laid the groundwork for a move after meeting super agent Jorge Mendes.

Former Arsenal striker Alan Smith has explained why United should let Ronaldo go, warning Chelsea of ​​a soap opera that would ensue if he arrived at Stamford Bridge.

“If Ronaldo wants to go, let him go,” said the Sky Sports pundit, speaking on behalf of 888. “He’s someone who obviously wants to play Champions League football.

“He came to United and did the job he was paid to do, which was to score goals. But Ten Hag now obviously wants a clean slate and no distractions. “Ronaldo is not playing this week” “He’s on the bench” You don’t know any of that and it’s a bit of a soap opera actually.

“So if [Ronaldo] wants to go, try to settle the doors first. I don’t know how effective they are at Manchester United and they are in a state of flux under a new manager, but Ten Hag will want to put together a squad he will really want to work with.

While Tuchel may be hesitant to include the Portuguese star in his Chelsea squad, the Blues manager has already called Ronaldo ‘one of the greatest’ players of all time.

The German said, quoted by The daily express“Time will tell, but I think it’s no secret that any team in the world without Cristiano [Ronaldo] is in some parts of the game a weaker team.

“He’s one of the greatest to ever play this game, and he proves it every time he’s on the pitch. Now [he is] in the Premier League and the Champions League, so they lost a great champion, a great reference and a great personality. But you can win games and be a strong team without Cristiano Ronaldo. It is also true.

According to the Times, Ronaldo has asked Erik ten Hag to respect his decision to leave the club if a “satisfactory offer” is received.

Moreover, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, whose contract with United expires next summer, has reportedly been offered to Bayern Munich but the German giants have rejected the offer.
