Paul Canoville says PL player linked with Chelsea is 'not the answer'

'Not the answer': Paul Canoville thinks PL player Boehly reportedly wants at Chelsea would be a poor signing

Paul Canoville claims that Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo would be a bad signing for Chelsea.

Ronaldo, who recently sat down for a controversial interview with Piers Morgan, is receiving a lot of criticism in the media as some of his comments start to emerge. For example, he’s openly criticised the Manchester United hierarchy and manager.

The Daily Mail claims Chelsea’s co-owner Todd Boehly may actually offer Ronaldo a move to Stamford Bridge. Journalist Ben Jacobs adds that the 37-year-old may be offered to the Blues by the player’s agent, Jorge Mends.

There’s certainly going to be real focus from the football community on what happens with the Portuguese star in the next couple of months.

Ronaldo would be a bad signing for Chelsea

Former Chelsea player Canoville has categorically made it clear that he doesn’t want Ronaldo to end up at the Bridge, suggesting he would be a poor signing.

“Whatever the question is Christian Ronaldo is not the answer!” Canoville said on Twitter.

It would’ve been a completely different answer a couple of years ago if you asked Chelsea fans if they would sign Ronaldo.

However, the legendary goalscorer does turn 38 in February and has fallen out of Manchester United’s best starting line-up. The fallout from this interview doesn’t paint him in a good light either.

It’s obvious that this Chelsea XI is still crying out for a prolific scorer, but we have to agree with Canoville that Ronaldo is not the solution.

In fairness, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a current Blues striker that should score a good amount of goals.

However, the team’s main aim post-World Cup has to be to create more goalscoring opportunities and get their forwards among the goals.

Chelsea have scored just 17 goals in 14 Premier League matches this season. In contrast, Manchester City have scored 40 goals in the same amount of games.
