Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly is on high alert after Cristiano Ronaldo informs Manchester United of his desire to leave the club in January.
According to reports, Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly has been put on high alert following Cristiano Ronaldo’s latest decision to leave Manchester United in the January transfer window.
Boehly expressed interest in the summer and met with Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, but head coach Thomas Tuchel refused to sanction a transfer, and Ronaldo remained at Old Trafford.
Tuchel refused to sign a contract with the Portuguese international because he preferred to concentrate on the team rather than the individual.
With Tuchel gone and Graham Potter in charge, a move for Ronaldo could be on the cards again if Boehly wants another chance to sign the 37-year-old.
According to The Telegraph, Ronaldo now wants to leave in January, and Ten Hag is willing to accept a suitable offer for the Manchester United star.
Ronaldo was benched during Manchester United’s 6-3 loss to Manchester City in the Manchester derby on Sunday afternoon at the Etihad.
Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag wanted to keep Ronaldo, admitting back in July: “Cristiano is not for sale. He is in our plans. We want success together.
“I had a good talk. That is between Cristiano and me, what I can confirm is we had a really good conversation together.”
Ten Hag chose to send on Anthony Martial instead and explained his reasoning after the game.
