Good morning Chelsea fans
Chelsea owner Todd Boehly held a meeting with the agent of Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo, Jorge Mendes, in Portugal last week.
The Blues owner has stepped in as an interim director of football to help the club with its transfers after transfer guru Marina Granovskaia and chairman Bruce Buck departed earlier this week.
The Manchester United star’s future is far from decided with the player being linked with a move away from Old Trafford.
And according to The Athletic, Ronaldo’s future at United as well as a potential move to Chelsea was discussed when Boehly met Mendes in Portugal last week.
The 37-year-old Portugal international has 12 months remaining on the two-year deal he signed when rejoining Man Utd last summer.
Chelsea are in the market for a forward this summer with club record signing Romelu Lukaku set to return to Inter Milan on loan.
But as things stand, United intend to keep the legendary forward.
Elsewhere, it has been suggested that Chelsea are the club ‘best placed’ to land Ousmane Dembele when his contract expires at Barcelona.
Marca claims Dembele is edging ever closer to leaving the Nou Camp when his deal expires after Xavi’s late play to keep the Frenchman looks to be too little, too late.
Reserve goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has also declared his intention to get more game time, hinting at a possible exit from Stamford Bridge.
