Chelsea are interested in signing Ronaldo
This video comes at a time when Chelsea are rumoured to be considering the possibility of signing Ronaldo.
Sports Brief had reported that Chelsea could reportedly pursue a stunning January transfer move for troubled Man United attacker Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo is in the final months of his contract at Old Trafford, with his current deal set to expire at the end of the ongoing season.
Graham Potter is against the move
But the move faces resistance as Graham Potter has reportedly disagreed with Chelsea ownership over Cristiano Ronaldo's potential move to London.
Social media has been awash with reports that Chelsea might make a move for Ronaldo in the January transfer window.
Ronaldo has been a long-term target of Chelsea's co-owner Todd Boehly, who wanted to sign him in the summer. However, the move was blocked by then-manager Thomas Tuchel.
