A potential shock transfer seeing Cristiano Ronaldo ditch Manchester United for Chelsea this summer was among topics discussed during a recent meeting between new owner Todd Boehly and super-agent Jorge Mendes. Ronaldo is growing disgruntled over United’s recruitment struggles as Boehly plans to make a splash in his first window at the Stamford Bridge helm.

According to David Ornstein, Boehly met Mendes in Portugal last week, with Chelsea yet to make the first signing of his tenure since buying the club from Roman Abramovich. And the idea of Ronaldo making an incredible intra-Premier League switch this summer arose.

United plan to keep the 37-year-old for Erik ten Hag’s first season, and he has no problem with the club’s new manager. However, he is understood to be increasingly concerned over the Red Devils’ lack of transfer activity after their worst-ever Premier League season, especially while their rivals strengthen.

Ronaldo has an undeniable affection for the Old Trafford giants but is desperate for them to match his ambition to enjoy a successful final season before his contract expires. Mendes has also discussed the possibility with Bayern Munich, and it currently isn’t known whether Chelsea will attempt to lure the Portuguese icon to west London.
