Chelsea are said to be keen on signing Cristiano Ronaldo, who has asked Man United to let him go.
If the Blues indeed sign him, there is the only way to use him — as a center-forward! His finishing is top-notch and he would certainly bring much-needed goals to Chelsea.
Tuchel’s side is also interested in deals for Raheem Sterling and Matthijs De Ligt. Here is what the Blues’ starting XI could look like with Ronaldo, Sterling and De Ligt.
Predicted XI: Mendy; Chalobah, Thiago Silva, De Ligt; James, Kovacic, Gallagher, Chilwell; Sterling, Ronaldo, Mount.
With Chelsea without a proven goalscorer yet, following Romelu Lukaku’s loan exit to Inter Milan, it would be a match for Ronaldo at Stamford Bridge, irrespective of his age.
Although it is said that Manchester United have asked the Portuguese to report to pre-season training so it’s unclear whether the Red Devils have the intention to let the 37-year-old leave this summer.
