Todd Boehly reveals his dream signing ahead of January transfer window

Breaking: Todd Boehly reveals his dream signing ahead of January transfer window.

Following their failure to capture the Manchester United superstar in the summer, Chelsea is reportedly planning to sign Cristiano Ronaldo in January. With Ronaldo, 37, desperate to leave United for a Champions League club, Chelsea was one of the teams that received a lot of attention during the most recent transfer window.

Owner Todd Boehly was furious because he desperately wanted to bring the perhaps biggest name in football to Stamford Bridge, but Blues manager Thomas Tuchel blocked the move. In the end, Chelsea decided to sign two star forwards in Raheem Sterling and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

In spite of this, Boehly is still hoping to sign Ronaldo, and according to Sunday World, he will make another attempt when the window reopens in January because of the player’s recent antics. Ronaldo made headlines last week for storming out of Old Trafford before the final whistle after infamously refusing to enter as a late substitution during United’s 2-0 victory against Tottenham.

Inflicting punishment on their forward, United manager Erik ten Hag demoted him to training with the U21s after leaving him out of the squad to play Chelsea on Saturday, a match that ended 1-1. In spite of Ten Hag’s claims to the contrary, some reports claim that Ronaldo has already played his final match with the Red Devils and that all parties would prefer the Portuguese international to go in January. After the Cheslea tie, Ten Hag was questioned about whether United missed Ronaldo.

“Yes, he can score a goal at any time. It is obvious that we need him and that he is valuable to us. I believe you can also see in this game that he can finish things off, which is quite obvious.”

Boehly is also more optimistic about the change now that Graham Potter is in charge and not Tuchel, though it is unclear whether the Englishman shares the American’s goals.
