Both Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo have been made available to Chelsea this summer.
The new Blues co-owner Todd Boehly has been approached by agents for the celebrity combo in an effort to persuade him to make a dramatic move for their clients.
It happens after Ronaldo informed Manchester United that if they get a good offer for him, he wants to go.
The 37-year-old is dissatisfied with Old Trafford’s lack of transfer activity and longs to compete for significant titles and play in the Champions League.
Due to family obligations, Ronaldo was permitted to miss today’s first day of preseason practice at United.
Chelsea star Matthijs de Ligt is willing to leave Juventus, and Thomas Tuchel is a major consideration.
His agent, Jorge Mendes, has already spoken with Boehly about a potential transfer for his client and has offered to help the club acquire additional players.
Neymar is reportedly open to a transfer to English football, and Paris Saint-Germain is willing to let him go. Thomas Tuchel is hesitant to hire a superstar, thus it is yet unknown how Chelsea would pay his £606,000 weekly salary.
A player like Ronaldo or Neymar may upset the balance of the team and would not fit their style of high-intensity game, according to some worries. Tuchel is also anxious to avoid making the same errors they did when they signed Romelu Lukaku for £97.5 million last summer.
Chelsea hopes to finalize a £45 million deal for Raheem Sterling before they depart for their preseason tour of the United States on Saturday. Chelsea is getting more and more confident that they will sign the Manchester City star.
Ronaldo requests permission to quit Manchester United
Raphinha, though, has resisted the Blues’ £55 million attempts to buy him from Leeds, so they may be looking for another attacking player. The 25-year-old has previously turned down offers from Arsenal and Tottenham and has informed the Spanish powerhouses that he will wait for a transfer to Barcelona.
Boehly and Clearlake Capital, the new owners of Chelsea, have given Tuchel a commitment to make at least six new recruits this summer in order to close the gap between Manchester City and Liverpool by the start of the next season.
