Boehly and Tuchel discussing Chelsea bid for unhappy Man Utd star Ronaldo

Chelsea are weighing up testing Manchester United's resolve with a bid for Cristiano Ronaldo.

It's been claimed Ronaldo has made a transfer demand to United in recent days.

The Sun says the board is determined to stand firm and refuse to sell - but the Portuguese star insists they should give the green light to any 'acceptable' bids.

And that could see the five-time Ballon d'Or winner join rivals Chelsea, who finished third last season - and therefore can offer Champions League football.

Blues manager Thomas Tuchel is on the hunt for a new striker following Romelu Lukaku's season-long loan to Inter Milan.

That leaves Timo Werner and Kai Havertz as the only players who can really play up front in the squad.

New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly recently met with Ronaldo's agent - Jorge Mendes - to discuss a host of topics, including a potential move for the sporting icon.
