Chelsea chiefs Boehly and Eghbali actively discussing bid for Man Utd star Ronaldo

Chelsea are exploring the prospect of signing Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo has requested United listen to offers for him this summer.

The Athletic reports United have insisted he is not for sale and have underlined that he is under contract for another year but Premier League rivals Chelsea are now eyeing a move for the star forward.

New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly met with Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes, where a move to Chelsea was among the subjects they discussed.

It is said that talks have since continued between the US businessman and Mendes with Boehly and fellow director Behdad Eghbali though to be interested in signing an iconic figure.

However, the wishes of manager Thomas Tuchel will have to be taken into consideration if the Blues are lining up a move.
