Chelsea’s pursuit of Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo has come to an end.
The 37-year-old international from Portugal wants to quit the team and a transfer to Stamford
Bridge has been mentioned.
However, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel stated that his “priority is on defense” after bringing in
former Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling on Wednesday.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has also stated that Ronaldo is “in our plans”
and “not for sale.”
The attacker has not yet traveled with Manchester United on their preseason tour of Asia and
Australia due to “personal concerns,” according to Ten Hag.
On Wednesday, when reporters questioned Tuchel about Ronaldo’s interest, he responded as
follows: “The career of Ronaldo speaks for itself. I’m aware that there are rumors floating about,
but I won’t start talking about the best players at other top teams.”
Sterling, an England international, is reportedly a star acquisition for Chelsea’s new owners, who
are reportedly thrilled with his hiring.
In preparation for the upcoming season, Sterling has joined the Chelsea group in Los Angeles.
Romelu Lukaku left on loan for Inter Milan, and Tuchel expressed his optimism that Sterling could
“mould” his club and lead a youthful assault.
With Kalidou Koulibaly of Napoli ready to sign a four-year contract and Nathan Ake of Manchester
City in negotiations, the German coach claimed Chelsea needed to “work smart and quickly” in
the transfer market to catch their opponents after sanctions were placed on the team.
Presnel Kimpembe, a center defender for France, has also been linked to Paris St-Germain.
Kimpembe played for Tuchel’s French club from 2018 to 2020.
