Chelsea are ready to make a £14 million bid for Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo following talks between owner Todd Boehly and manager Thomas Tuchel, say reports.

The 37-year-old forward, who was the club's top scorer last season with 24 goals, has asked to leave United should the Premier League club receive a 'satisfactory offer' this summer.

Ronaldo's desire to play in the Champions League for the remainder of his career is one of the driving factors behind his decision, as is his frustrations with United's inactivity in the transfer market.

Chelsea have been one of the clubs linked with a move for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner. Last month, Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes reportedly held discussions over a possible transfer with owner Todd Boehly.

According to The Athletic, Boehly met Mendes in Portugal and the idea of Ronaldo making a move to Stamford Bridge this summer were amongst the topics of conversation during the meeting.

Now, a report from Football Insider suggests Chelsea are ready to make a move.

TalkSPORT regular Gabby Agbonlahor doesn't see the transfer happening anytime soon.

“I think [Ronaldo] would definitely be a good fit – but I don’t see it happening," he said. "“He would not want a big ego like Ronaldo coming in and wanting to play every game.

“He would rather go and get Raphinha and Sterling, players who aren’t bigger than the manager or the club.

“For me, Tuchel would definitely not want Ronaldo.

“But if it comes from above him and the owners want him, then maybe something could happen.”

Thoughts on Ronaldo potentially joining Chelsea?
