The future of Cristiano Ronaldo (37 years old) is still up in the air. More than a week ago, the Portuguese star made clear his desire to leave Manchester United and Chelsea is now considered the most likely destination. For this reason, during the tour that has just begun in the United States, Thomas Tuchel has been asked about the possibility of signing Cristianoand his response has not contributed to calm the spirits of a hobby enthusiastic about the idea. As AS has learned, the new property of the English club has a great interest in taking over the Portuguese star. Todd Boehly wants to make a splash by signing the five-time Ballon d’Or. At the opposite pole, however, is Thomas Tuchel. The German coach is not convinced that the arrival of the Portuguese is positive for the group and considers that his signing could break the ecosystem of a team that was European champion two seasons ago.
As Diario AS advanced, Chelsea’s new president, Todd Boehly, held a meeting with Jorge Mendes, Cristiano’s agent, and already at that moment the option of a transfer was raised. But the final decision seems to depend largely on Tuchel, that although he is reluctant to bring a great star, needs a striker after the departure of Romelu Lukaku.
“Will you sign Cristiano?” Boldly asked one of the followers who crowded into the concentration hotel and who recorded the moment in which Tuchel is seen responding with a smile from ear to ear and a phrase: “I will not tell you.” Thus, the German coach avoided giving clues about a future transfer, despite the fact that the talks between the parties are a reality.
On the other hand, Bayern is also divided around the figure of Cristiano. The coach Julian Nagelsmann would see with very good eyes the incorporation of Cristiano if Lewandowski left the club for Barcelona, but at the opposite pole is an important sector of the Bayern leaders. This more conservative sector considers that at 37 years old, Cristiano is no longer in a position to perform at his highest level. However, last season he was Manchester United’s top scorer with 24 goals.
