Chelsea Owner Meets With Cristiano Ronaldo’s Agent To Discuss Shock Transfer

Manchester United legend Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent has been meeting with new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly with discussions held over a possible transfer.

Chelsea has had a whirlwind of a week after it was announced that a new board of directors have been selected and Maria Granovskaia will leave the club after 19 years. With Boehly naming himself as interim sporting director. 

And now, Boehly will be busy in the transfer market with the Stamford Bridge club yet to sign any new players in the window. 

According to The Athletic, Boehly met in Portugal last week with super agent Jorge Mendes, whose client include Cristiano Ronaldo

It is believed that Ronaldo’s current situation at United and the idea of the Portuguese making a move to Chelsea this summer were amongst the topics of conversation during the meeting between the pair. 

37-year-old Ronaldo is heading into the last year of his current deal at United after he made the sensational return to Old Trafford last summer after leaving the club 13 years ago. 

It is unclear at the moment whether Chelsea will put in any concrete offers to bring Ronaldo to the club, German giants Bayern Munich are also said to be keeping tabs on Ronaldo’s situation. As things stand, United have no intention of letting their star man leave. 

It has also been reported that Ronaldo has huge affinity for United and does not have any issues with new manager Erik ten Hag

Ronaldo said in a recent interview: “I was and still am very happy to be here.” 

“I know (Ten Hag) did a fantastic job for Ajax and that he’s an experienced coach but we need to give him time and things need to change the way he wants.”

“I hope we have success. I wish him the best. We are happy and excited. Let’s believe that next year we are going to win trophies. I believe that Manchester (United) will be where they belong. Sometimes it takes time, but I still believe.” 

His love for the club cannot be questioned but Ronaldo is said to be frustrated by the lack of progress in the transfer market by the club. Whilst rivals Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal have all added quality to their squad, United are yet to bring in anyone. 

Chelsea will be in the market for an attacker after agreeing to send Romelu Lukaku back to Inter Milan to a season long loan.

Would Ronaldo shock the football world by leaving United for a direct Premier League rival in Chelsea? Only time will tell.
