Chelsea have decided not to sign Cristiano Ronaldo after key talks took place between Thomas Tuchel and Todd Boehly.
The club’s new American owner has taken on the role of acting sporting director following the departure of Marina Granovskaia last month.
Boehly has played a lead role in Chelsea’s transfer dealings this summer and met with Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, earlier this summer where the idea of bringing the 37-year-old to Stamford Bridge was raised.
Ronaldo has made no secret of his desire to quit Old Trafford less than 12 months after his emotional homecoing. The former Real Madrid star is, however, running out of potential escape routes with Chelsea the latest heavyweight European club to rule themselves out of the running, according to the Daily Mail.
