Promoted to Chelsea’s new manager, Graham Potter would have asked for the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo to his managers. But according to the latest rumors, the club from the London capital still has no plans to recruit the Portuguese forward from Manchester United.
Chosen by Chelsea management to secure Thomas Tuchel’s succession, Graham Potter would target several profiles during the next winter transfer window. Among the names targeted by the English coach is that of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese forward of Manchester United. At the same time, the 37-year-old star no longer intends to continue his career at Old Trafford. If the former Juventus Torino player hadn’t left the Red Devils during the last summer transfer window, the five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or would leave the English club in January. According to information from the newspaper The sunhis teammates would be warned of his wishes elsewhere in the coming months.
A nightmare start to the season
Good news coming for the Blues? For now, Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival at Stamford Bridge remains very hypothetical. If we are to believe the revelations of the journalist Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea would not discuss for the moment the recruitment of the former Real Madrid player. While Graham Potter has just taken office, the London capital club would have other priorities in mind and its intentions on the next transfer market are not yet known.
Under contract until June 2023 with Manchester United, plus another twelve months as an option, Cristiano Ronaldo is having a very difficult start to the 2022-2023 season. In seven games played in all competitions, including six Premier League games, “CR7” has not yet found the net. Returning to the club during the summer of 2021, around a transaction worth 15 million euros, the mancunian number 7 had to settle for two positions under the orders of Dutch coach Erik ten Hag.
🚨 EXCLUSIVE 🚨@Fabrizio Romano: “My understanding at the moment is that there is no talk of Cristiano Ronaldo as Chelsea are busy with several priorities, including the new manager. It is too early to know Chelsea’s intentions for January.”
