Transfers: The Ronaldo file would have deepened tensions between Tuchel and Boehly at Chelsea


In the last days of the transfer window, his name circulated in Naples, Dortmund or Sporting Portugal. Yet Cristiano Ronaldo remained at Manchester United, where he will have to settle for the Europa League. However, the five-time Ballon d’Or could have played in the C1, which he won five times (2008, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018), in the colors of Chelsea. This Wednesday, Picture announces that the Portuguese has been close to the Blues.
The German daily even specifies that the Cristiano Ronaldo file would have been one of the reasons for the bad relations between Thomas Tuchel, sacked the day after the defeat on the lawn of Dinamo Zagreb (0-1) in the Champions League, and Todd Boehly, the owner of the Blues. If the American businessman wanted to attract the 37-year-old player, the German technician would have vetoed it by saying, according to Picturethat his arrival « would destroy the state of mind of the locker room« .

Cristiano Ronaldo, a substitute in the last four Premier League matches, will therefore have to play another season at Manchester United, where he is under contract until June 2023. Thomas Tuchel is now looking for a new club while Todd Boelhy is already on the trail of a new trainer.
