Todd Boehly has reportedly not ruled out a move for Cristiano Ronaldo in January.

According to 90min, the Chelsea owner is apparently still debating whether to pursue the Portugal international after the World Cup concludes.

Ronaldo’s future is very much up in the air right now, following his dramatic exit from Manchester United.

The 37-year-old sparked social media into life by openly attacking the Old Trafford board, whilst simultaneously slamming a few ex-pros.

Many viewed it as a blatant tactic to get himself out of Manchester as quick as possible.

If this was the case, Ronaldo got his wishes rather rapidly.

The Red Devils cut up the attacker’s expensive contract, having given him all the jewels only last summer.

Now a free-agent, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner will be debating his next footballing destination.

Will Ronaldo really join forces with Potter?

If he’s in it purely for the money, the Middle East or America could offer him a very handsome treasure chest.

But Ronaldo is the type of character who wants to prove he is more than just a dollar sign.

His incredible powers may have faded since his return to United, but he can still pack a punch when required.

Boehly seemingly shares this view, as he continues to juggle the idea of CR7 at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea’s commanding chief toyed with thought ahead of the season, and may be completely sold now Ronaldo is fully available to the market.

He might be met with objection from Graham Potter, however, who is said to not be overly keen on signing the ‘extraordinary’ Portugal captain.

Although Potter’s side have lacked goals this term, increasing the overall age of the squad is not ideal.

Plus, Ronaldo clearly comes with the added pressure of playing him every week, which may disgruntle certain members of the current Chelsea camp.

Our suggestion; stay clear of Cristiano.
