Cristiano Ronaldo willing to consider Chelsea move

ESPN now reports that Chelsea have been informed that Ronaldo could be willing to link up with Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea.

The Blues are in the market for a prolific forward after the departure of Romelu Lukaku, who rejoined Inter Milan on loan.

Incredibly, Chelsea are also said to be weighing up a shock move for Portugal international and harbour the hope of luring him to Stamford Bridge.

According to The Athletic, talks between Mendes, Boehly, and fellow director Behdad Eghbali over the transfer of Ronaldo have been ongoing.

Be that as it may, Tuchel is still expected to have a say on Chelsea's push to sign the iconic footballer, who has also been linked with a move to Bayern Munich.
