In light of Mohamed Salah’s forthcoming admission, Todd Boehly explains why Chelsea should sign Cristiano Ronaldo.

Given that trade for Mohamed Salah is no longer an option, Ian Rush explained to Todd Boehly why Chelsea must buy Cristiano Ronaldo. Before signing a new contract at Anfield this summer, the Liverpool attacker was allegedly “willing” to return to Stamford Bridge, dealing Thomas Tuchel a sad transfer blow.

The Egyptian international allegedly courted interest from many top-flight clubs as his future at the club became more uncertain, with Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid apparently competing with the Blues for Salah’s signing. Inking a contract puts an end to months of rumors that the 30-year-old was willing to see out his contract at Liverpool and then depart the team for free.

Salah joined Jurgen Klopp’s team on a three-year agreement for £350,000 per week, making him the highest-paid player in Reds history. Todd Boehly was getting ready to talk to the Liverpool forward about his contract status even if a return to Chelsea this summer is unlikely, according to The Sun.
The talisman informed the owners of Liverpool through his agent Ramy Abbas that he would be open to moving back to west London. But now that a transfer is no longer an option, Chelsea has been advised why they should sign Ronaldo despite his own future being more and more uncertain.

Former Liverpool striker Rush told the Echo: “I see Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United and he keeps himself incredibly fit and Mo, who is much younger than him, is doing exactly that too, he is keeping himself fit and he is motivated to continue at that level.”
The Athletic claims that Boehly spoke with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes about a potential move for the 37-year-old attacker. It is rumored that Ronaldo, whose deal at Old Trafford expires in only a year, is growing increasingly frustrated with United’s lack of transfer activity and the absence of any new signings.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has previously been offered to Bayern Munich, according to the source, but the German powerhouse has objected to the idea. The fact that Boehly and Mendes had a meeting in Portugal to talk about Ronaldo’s future may have given the west Londoners an advantage in luring the American millionaire away from Old Trafford.

The Times reports that should the Red Devils get an “acceptable offer,” the attacker has requested United to respect his decision. Given that Erik ten Hag is expected to lead United into the Europa League this year, Ronaldo’s decision is reportedly motivated by his desire to participate in the Champions League. Chelsea appears to be in a strong position, but it is unclear whether the Blues would pursue the talisman.
