Graham Potter responds to potential £400k-a-week Chelsea signing
Chelsea manager Graham Potter is ‘unenthused’ by the prospect of signing Cristiano Ronaldo
Ronaldo has been in the tongues of most people for the past few weeks ever since he done that TV interview with Piers Morgan and pretty much slammed his time at the club this season.
That prompted Man United to take action and after a few days of talks and decisions – it was announced this week that the club and Ronaldo have both agreed to go their separate ways – his contract had been terminated.
That has led to all sorts of rumours that Chelsea owner Ted Boehly wants him at Stamford Bridge – having missed out on the player during the summer transfer window.
But Potter is understood to be as ‘equally unenthused’ as Thomas Tuchel was at the prospect of having Ronaldo in his Chelsea squad. -according to reporter Ben Jacobs.
He said: “As a young manager already making the step up to Chelsea, my understanding is that he’s not particularly enamored by the idea of having a character like Cristiano Ronaldo in his dressing room, and certainly not without a kind of clear out first.
“Otherwise, there’s naturally a scenario where Ronaldo could come in, Aubameyang is already there and not getting as much game time as he would like, Armando Broja has been given guarantees that he’s going to get game time.
‘Kai Havertz expects to be in the starting line-up for big games, Raheem Sterling’s being sort of migrated to left wing-back but would obviously prefer and is more comfortable being part of a front-line.
“So, the concern from Potter’s perspective is what will Ronaldo do to the dynamic.”
Ronaldo being on the market is nothing new – he is becoming more trouble than he is worth.
A few years ago he would have been a brilliant signing for Chelsea – but he is past his best and honestly – would bring too much wanted attention to the Bridge
It could be a massive mistake for Chelsea to make a move for the man
